About Museumnacht Maastricht

Museumnacht Maastricht is an initiative of B32, Boekhandel Dominicanen, Bonnefantenmuseum, Brouwerij Bosch, Bureau Europa, Centre Céramique, Drukkunstmuseum, Lumière Cinema, Marres, Museum aan het Vrijthof, Muziekgieterij, Natuurhistorisch Museum, Toneelgroep Maastricht, Jan van Eyck Academie and VIA ZUID.

Why do we organise it?

Well, besides it being the best art-night-out experience ever ;), the aim of Museumnacht is to present and celebrate with everyone all the treasures the museums and cultural institutions in Maastricht have to offer. and by doing so, Museumnacht Maastricht aims to contribute and strengthen the art and culture identity of the city and its region.

2016: first edition 

De first-ever Museumnacht Maastricht took place on 15 April 2016. Ten art venues in Maastricht opened their doors for the first time for Museumnacht Maastricht: Bonnefantenmuseum, Bureau Europa, Boekhandel Dominicanen, Marres, Museum aan het Vrijthof, Natuurhistorisch Museum, Drukkunstmuseum en Van Eyck. It was also the official kick-off for the National Museumweek 2016. 

Bigger,better & bolder 

After the great success of the first edition, Museumnacht Maastricht took over the city again on 7 April 2017. We also welcomed four new venues: Muziekgieterij, Lumière Cinema, Brouwerij Bosch and Museum Sjoen Limburg. 

On Friday 13 April 2018 the 3rd edition of Museumnacht Maastricht was a fact. And it definitely wasn't filled with your typical Friday the 13th bad luck vibe. Over more than 4,000 art lovers enjoyed a spectacular Art meets Clubbing programme that took over the city of Maastricht. 

Foundation Museumnacht Maastricht
