About National Museum Week 2018
During National Museum Week 2018 over 400 museums throughout the Netherlands participate in a celebration of the country’s rich cultural capital by offering special entry fees and organising various activities.
During this week, many museums choose to grant access at a discount or even for free.
This year’s theme
This year’s theme is “Our real gold”, inspiring museums to show off their true treasures and showpieces. Museums revive the past by storing and exhibiting the world’s treasures, offering us an escape from our daily fast-paced routines.
Throughout the museums, seven real golden treasures are flaunted as this year’s grand attraction.
If this week leaves you hungry for more, you may be interested in purchasing one of the many useful cultural cards and passes the Netherlands has to offer; the museum card. This card costs 54,95 euros per year for adults, and allows you free access at a large number of museums in the Netherlands.
