Art in Amsterdam during the Museum weekend

For the 26th time, during the weekend of April 14th & 15th, the national museum weekend has been organized, with more than five hundred museums participating, many of them in Amsterdam. Often people watch paintings and read accompanying texts, but there’s a big difference between looking at and actually seeing art! Therefore this year’s theme is “The art of experience”, as a museum isn’t only about looking at paintings or sculptures, it’s about using all of your senses to experience the art.

The weekend of the 14th and 15th of April, museums offer something extra in the form of themed speeches, puzzle walks, special exhibitions, discounts, or even completely free entry! If you’re in Amsterdam during this weekend, use this once-a-year opportunity to enjoy all activities on offer by seeing, feeling, hearing, smelling and even tasting all that the museums have in store for you.

And as always, don’t forget to ask our reception-piggies for the discounts on offer Smiley
