When is the next Museum Night in Rotterdam?
The next Museum Night in Rotterdam takes place on Saturday, 2 March 2024.
What is Museum Night?
The 'Museumnacht' is a yearly event which takes place (on different dates) in different cities in the Netherlands as well as Belgium. Rotterdam's Museum Night takes place on the first Saturday in March, whereas Amsterdam's Museumnacht is always on the first Saturday in November. In Brussels and Oostende it's known as 'Museumnocturne'. During these events, many museums and art galleries participate by opening their doors in the evening hours and hosting special expositions and artistic performances.
Museum Night Rotterdam, known as Museumnacht010, is a unique opportunity to check out all the art and culture Rotterdam has to offer! Expect to see exhibitions, unique collections, bizarre performances and daring projects at more than 40 museums and cultural institutions in the city. All museums and cultural institutions taking part are open from 20:00 until 1:00. Note that you need to purchase tickets beforehand (before they sell out) to actually gain full access to every location on this night.
Rotterdam's Museum Night always has a very diverse programme. Check out the full programme and get your tickets on the Museumnacht010 website.
Museumnacht010 is a collaboration of the participating art and cultural institutions of Rotterdam. The institutions put together their own program and seek cooperation in order to show what Rotterdam has to offer in the field of art and culture. Museum Night010 is managed by a small coordinating project team.
