Want to escape the heat? Or is your beach day canceled due to rain? You can always visit the Stedelijk! There is plenty to do in the museum this summer. Take a guided tour, dive into the infinity pool or join one of our workshops. We'll see you soon. 😃 Scroll down to see what's on offer.


Every Tuesday and Thursday, 11 am to 1 pm and 2 pm to 4 pm, free of charge, for the whole family

We invited artists to create interactive workshops in the entrance area of our museum. They have developed workshops in line with the It’s our F***ing Backyard and Abstracting Parables exhibitions. Come take a look on Tuesdays and Thursdays and get creative yourself.

Every day, for the whole family 

Is waste worthless? Not at all! You can experience all kinds of new things. Many artists and creators do that. Now you can get to work yourself in our lovely LAVFA LAB. You can make the most beautiful mosaics from the waste of the museum. And you can even go down the slide in the museum!

In the LAVFA LAB, developed by the creative collective Hotmamahot, you can experiment with magnified atoms. Dive into the plastic infinity pool and have fun with the particles inside the lab. What do you make of it?

Lux the firefly lives in the museum and flies around at night when all the lights are out. And the artworks love that because they're a bit afraid of the dark. But now the firefly has lost his light! Who can help Lux to get his light back? On their quest, children visit eight works of art and see all kinds of fantastic things. From a magic ring to hidden faces! From works of art that produce sounds to art that makes you dance... but will you be able to find the light? 

The children's tour can be followed at Tomorrow is a Different Day. Collection 1980–now. At the entrance you can grab an audio player or scan a QR code with your phone to listen. The audio tour is easy to follow—scan the squares with KIDS on them, using the audio player or your phone. 

The tour is available every day in Dutch and English.
