The Museumkaart advantage

museum-kaartNot sure what to do with the kids during the Christmas break? Take them to one of the hundreds of unique, kid-friendly, inspiring and fun museums in the Netherlands!

Did you know that you can gain entrance often at a reduced price or for free with the Museumkaart?

The Museumkaart program has been running since 1981 and now has over 1 million card holders.

Currently you can see highlighted museums that have special programs running just for kids on THIS page (Dutch only). Three well-known museums in Tilburg that are always great for the kids are De Pont, De Textielmuseum and De Natuurmuseum. With the Museumkaart, you can get in free to all three!

From 1868 to 2011, the Spoorzone was an industrial site – a place where trains were built and repaired for Nederlandse Spoor and “migrants” from Utrecht came to work on the railways. Today, the Spoorzone is home to the Red Cross, an intended hub for entrepreneurs, a skate park for youth and, during Mundial festival or one of the many market weekends (e.g., Bazouq, Swan Market, Pasar Malam), a bustling event space.
