Your child’s birthday

Time to celebrate

We make your child's birthday an unforgettable event. Together with your child’s friends, they all get to know the museum, explore glowing waterfalls, blue-red cellars full of tears or rooms with dancing stars. Ten meters below ground level and in a world full of light and shadow, they discover a unique museum with small experiments and get creative together.


You can choose from the following programmes:

Light Graffiti

Painting with light. Equipped with all kinds of light sources, children experiment in the dark with colour and light. With the camera and long exposure, colourful, unique photos are made. In the end, all children take their favorite picture home with them.

Light Graffiti
Art in a Shoebox

With a little imagination, cardboard boxes become unique art spaces: with luminous colors, mirrors, neon wool, colorful tapes, etc., objects of art are created to take along with you.

Shadow Theatre

The shadow play is the oldest form of light art. All children design shadow creatures out of cardboard and stage a small performance. The children themselves can also become shadow dancers behind a huge canvas.

Glowing Masks

The light works of art shine multicoloured in the dark basement. You want to catch the light and take it home with you. For this all design cardboard masks that can be decorated with lots of neon, glitter and luminous colours.

On the trail of buttons

Treasure hunt for 5-8 year olds.
We go on an adventurous treasure hunt through the museum rooms, with tricky tasks to master and colourful buttons to collect. Whoever can solve the mystery behind the buttons at the end will also find the way to the treasure chest.

Mr. Morse Mouse

Treasure hunt from 8 years old.
Mr. Morse Mouse has hidden his clues all over the museum. Who will find them and know how to decipher them? What do the strange dots and lines mean? Only together can you reach your goal and find the treasure.
