Which museums are kids’ favorites?

Every year, our reviewers find out which museums are the most fun for children and deserve the ‘Kid-approved’ rating. All museums affiliated with the Netherlands Museum Association that received 60 or more reviews from kids with an average rating of at least 8 (on a scale of up to 10) during the last review period can call themselves ‘Kid-approved’.
