National Museum Week in the Netherlands

National Museum Week takes place in April every year, and playfully gives pride of place to our cultural heritage, the museums’ unique collections. Previous editions have amazed the public, including by putting an enormous golden spacesuit in a parking lot along a highway. A giant inflatable of Grutte Pier’s sword in the Leeuwarden market square also attracted attention from the throngs of shoppers. Museum Week 2020 was forced online, resulting in great digital TV. National Museum Week 2021 will be held from 19 to 25 April. We won’t tell you what to expect quite yet. Discover our treasure troves together! #OnsEchteGoud

The Netherlands Museums Association

Strength in numbers

The Netherlands Museums Association and its affiliates put the public interest of the museums first. Museums collect, store, research, interpret and present the significance of our common cultural heritage. We help to connect museums and their collections with everyone in the Netherlands via the website, the Museumtips newsletter and the Netherlands Museum Pass.
