4 November

Dit evenement is afgelopen.

On November 4th, the Amsterdam museums will open their doors during the night hours between 19:00 and 02:00. More than 50 museums will present special nightly activities, inspired by their permanent collection or by temporary exhibitions.

The Hortus celebrates the Museumnight this year with ‘Medicinal plants’. Every day we use plants. And we do not just mean your house decoration, but they are also in your food, drinks, clothes, and drugs. Every day new ingredients are extracted and new applications are discovered. But when are we working with modern medicine and when are we just relying on folk tales? Discover for yourself  during the Museum Night in the Hortus. Take a tour with one of our tour guides, enjoy plantlife, dance to the tunes of the dj, and enjoy a cocktail with medicinal herbs!

Entrance only with a Museumnacht Ticket. Tickets can be bought at
