Imagine, having acces to more then 50 (exactly 57) museums at night in Amsterdam. Hearing lots of (live) music & entertainment, see world famous art, and having a drink everywhere in the city. Special tours will be given, and there are after party’s, to amuse you until the early hours. This big event is called the Museum Nacht (better known as Museum Night Amsterdam). It’s organized every year on the first Saturday of November.
See it for yourself on the 17th edition on Saturday the 5th of November from 7PM until 2AM.
This event is well visited by both locals and non Dutch visitors. The event drawls around 30.000 people to the museums. The purpose of Museum Night is to drawl a new and younger audience between 18 – 35 years old to the Amsterdam museums. Originally the concept of Museum Night was founded in Berlin. Other big cities like Rotterdam in the Netherlands are starting with their own Museum Night as well. The Museum Night in Amsterdam is the biggest one.
