Theme Museum week: Freedom

The National Museum Week is an initiative of the Dutch Museum Association and is organised to strengthen the support for museums in the Netherlands. The National Museum Week (20 to 26 April) will experience its 6th edition in 2020, with the theme 'freedom'. The fact that we are celebrating 75 years of liberation this year was of course of decisive importance. This National Museum Week will therefore be an essential part of the "Month of Freedom" in collaboration with the National Committee 4 and 5 May.
