Autumn has arrived and the darker the days get, the cosier it is at the Museum of the Canals. This autumn we planned events for both young and old during the colder, festive days. Join us with a hot chocolate or mulled wine in our decorated, historic rooms! Mind you, we have a limited capacity for these fun events: full = full!
Free entrance for kids up to 13 years.
Evening opening – The Haunted Canalhouse = FULLY BOOKED!
October 30 19.00 – 22.00 (all ages)
Mind you: this event is fully booked. Send an e-mail to RSVP@grachten.museum if you would like to be on the waitinglist.
Is it really haunted at Herengracht 386? According to some of our visitors it is… Discover the museum in the dark on this spooky evening with a storyteller. Do you dare to visit the haunted canalhouse? Free pumpkin punch included and lottery ticket to win a board game! 🎃🎟
Kids morning reading – The Haunted Canalhouse
October 31 10.00 – 12.00
Listen to spooky tales from children’s books told by a storyteller. Bring a yoga mat or pillow and dream away by gazing at the original wall paintings in the historic room.
Sinterklaas is back: visit the Sint himself and put your shoe on the fireplace
We received a letter from Spain from none other than Sinterklaas himself!
He is looking forward to return to the museum with his Pieten and would like you to come along with your class, brothers or sisters. You can even pick a present, but only if you’ve been sweet this year…
Shoe on the fireplace
From November 14th till December 5th
This is a Dutch tradition. From the day Sinterklaas arrives in The Netherlands, all the kids put one of their shoes on the fireplace. Every morning they will find little treats in their shoe which Sinterklaas or one of his helpers put there the night before.
Meet & Greet with Sinterklaas in the classical Andriessen room
November 28th 10.00 – 13.00
December 1st 15.00 – 18.00
Free entrance with the museumcard for all the events. Don’t have a museumcard? Then the regular entrancefees applies.
