Stichting Museumnacht Amsterdam – 20 years
The gong is sounded by Jordy den Haan, Project Manager at Stichting N8 I Museum Night Amsterdam. The occasion is the foundation's 20-year anniversary. In addition, 2019 is Jordy's last Museum Night. All in all a festive year!
20 years of Museum Night Amsterdam
Museum Night Amsterdam has become one of the largest cultural events in Amsterdam in 20 years. Museum Night Amsterdam introduces and connects a young and local audience with the Amsterdam museums. For this target group, Museum Night is the gateway to the museums in their city and wants to inspire and convince them that these museums are also there for them. The first and largest museum night in the Netherlands now attracts more than 32,000 visitors, about half of whom actually come for the first time and nearly 80% are younger than 35 years. Museum Night provides its visitors with a first experience in the museum every year: whether it is Museum Night in Amsterdam for the first time or your twentieth. Every edition is unique and feels like an introduction.
