Museumn8

On November 3rd, 50 Amsterdam Museums are open from 7PM until 2AM for the annual Museum Night.
Apart from seeing the permanent collections and temporary exhibitions there is plenty more to see and do, also for non-Dutch visitors. On this 13th edition you can enjoy live music, DJ’s, dance, performances, film, special tours, food & drinks in the many museums of the city. For the Museum Night you buy a ticket (€ 17.50,-), which gives you entrance to 50 museums, free use of all GVB buses and trams and 1 free museum visit valid until December 31st 2012. Museum Night is organised by N8 | Stichting Museumnacht Amsterdam.

I recommend you to pass by the POP-UP location of the Pers Museum on Museumplein, one of my favourite museums!
Their programme during Museumn8 is as follows;

19.00: Start Museumn8
20.00: Illustrator  Kifah Al Reefi will be drawing live at the pop-up location
20.00-21.00: Lecture by photojournalist  Geert van Kesteren on the role of social media in the Arab world

02.00: The end.

During the whole night there will be a bar with mint tea, baklava and Turkish fruits, as well as music and a quiz.

  1. I’ve never been but it sounds great. Will try to stop by tomorrow!

  2. Very sorry to miss this yet again. We’re always in Sydney later in the year.

    And thanks for the link to the Persmuseum – I don’t know it, but it sounds worth a visit when we’re back in Nederland!
