Sweet Summer Children's Afternoon (11.00-16.30)
At the annual Sweet Summer Children’s Afternoon (already the third edition!) the focus is also on the story. With funny theatre, unusual music, exciting performances and lots of amusing ‘doing activities’ for children of all ages... and of course all the dads, mums, grannies and grandpas. A unique opportunity to discover the museum and its famous sculpture garden together!

Hop on the school bus by artist Judith Nab (4-12 years old), where the real world slowly changes into a fantasy world, with tunnels, mountains, sheep and... seahorses! Or go and see whether three police officers can catch an escaped rabbit, in the show ‘Gezocht: konijn’ (Wanted: rabbit) (3+) by Theatergroep Max. Slightly older children will certainly enjoy the story and wonderful classical music of the J.O.N.G. Ensemble, based on ‘Het hemelse fagotje’ (The heavenly bassoon) by Annie MG Schmidt (4-99 years old), or the amazing Meganimator, with which you can make your own animation films. You can also get to work at Festivalkunst (last year: Chonk), where you can journey into space just like that, or colour a whole living room (4-12). You have to see it to believe it! A professional Schminckgroep (make-up group) will turn your face into a work of art...(2-99) and if you start to regret all those colours, you can always go to the cheeky Waterbek by artist Lucas Steenhuis. Tell the water in the fountain your own story and it’s sure to react... (2-99 years old).
And between times you can naturally see all the wonderful works of art that the museum is so famous for! The Enamel Garden, Swan or all the other works from the successful picture book ‘Swan looks for a playmate’. Or eat a delicious pancake, available from the catering.
