Especially for young cultural night owls aged between 4 and 12 years old, there is Museum Night Kids! On Saturday 17 March 2018 between 17.00 - 22.00 pm, around 20 museums and cultural venues in The Hague and Voorburg are opening their doors with a special programme full of the best activities.
This is much more than just a visit to a museum in the dark. There is something fun to do everywhere, especially for children. Show your own creative side at one of the craft workshops and your intelligent side during the treasure hunts that pass the beautiful artworks. There is something for everyone.
