The Hague Museum Night

Some 40 museums, galleries, libraries and government buildings in The Hague will offer an exciting cultural programme during the 6th annual Museum Night on Saturday, 5 September.
This year’s The Hague Museum Night (Museumnacht) promises to be even bigger than last year, and the theme ‘Full Exposure’ guarantees that the museums will fling their doors wide open and bare all. Most of The Hague’s museums will be involved and highlights include after parties and a special children’s route.
Each cultural institution will offer their own specially composed programme from 20.00 to 1.00 hrs., inspired by their collections or exhibits.
Don’t miss the sexy and daring opening at 19.30 hrs. when the Koninklijke Schouwburg is transformed into a variety theatre in 1930s style. Unique, bizarre, extraordinarily extravagant in style and taste, Sven Ratzke will open the event with a combination of cabaret, song and dance. Miss Flora Gattina will show off her sultry elegance, inner creativity and beauty during her Burlesque show.
For the kids
Museum Night will again include a special route for children under 12 from 16.30 to 20.00 hrs. The children’s programme will have a festive opening at 16.00 hrs. in the Tuinzaal of the Gemeentemuseum with a short interactive children’s performance and sing-a-long.
This Children’s Museum Night is free of charge for children between 4 and 12 years of age when accompanying adults have tickets for Museum Night.
Let the fabulous programme of the Museum Night sweep you away while you enjoy art, theatre and dance performances. If you still aren’t tired afterwards you can continue your cultural adventure at the after party in the Paard van Troje.
The Hague Museum Night will be held from 20.00 to 1.00 hrs. on Saturday, 5 September at participating cultural institutions. The Children’s Museum Night is from 16.30 to 20.00 hrs.
