Museum Night Amsterdam

October 10, 2013 in Amsterdam Blog

Museum Night Amsterdam is one of our favorite events in Amsterdam. It combines art and culture with a festive atmosphere, because it is the only chance to visit Amsterdam’s broad range of museums at night. On the 2nd of November, more than 50 museums are open from 19:00 to 02:00.

It will not be the wildest party you have ever seen, but there is an element of fun in this event. It started to get more young people interested in art. All the masterpieces are on display, but there is more.

During Museum Night Amsterdam the museums offer dj’s, workshops, special tours and performances. You are able to have a drink and enjoy art in a more livelier place than you would expect from a museum. There are all types of music like house, hip hop, urban and rock.
