Museumnacht010 is a collaboration of the art and cultural institutions of Rotterdam. The institutions curate their own program during the night and seek collaborations to show what Rotterdam has to offer in the field of art and culture. Museumnacht010 is managed by a small project team.

Certainly! There is a discounted fee for children up to the age of 12. There are plenty of activities that kids will love.

For years, Museumnacht010 has focused on connecting with each other, the city and art. In keeping with this theme, the Language Night will be organized for the first time during Museum Night. A special collaboration between Museumnacht010 and the municipality of Rotterdam.

The Taalnacht (Language Night) is an initiative to bring various Rotterdammers together and experience Museumnacht010 together. Especially for this occasion, the Central Library will be transformed into a language museum. There will be readings by language students in collaboration with Derek Otte and other Rotterdam poets. There are also lectures in the Maritime Museum.

From the library, Museumnacht010 visitors and language students take a city walk together. They visit two museums under supervision. It will be a special evening! Language students can practice the language and become acquainted with museums and art in the city. At the same time, we want to inform Museumnacht010 visitors about language and low literacy in the city and inspire them to become language volunteers.
