On Saturday night in a first week of November each year Amsterdam’s museums open through the night from 19:00 till 02:00 hrs. More than 50 museums open their doors with a special program for young people, based on their own collection and exhibition.

In 2000, the event was organized for the first time. Meanwhile, this Museum Night has become one of the biggest events in Amsterdam. Last years, the all tickets where completely sold out.
