From 19 December, children aged 6 to 12 years can go treasure hunting with their parents in the Museumkwartier of The Hague. With the free Children’s Passport for the Museum Quarter they can visit eight cultural institutions to collect stickers and items. As a final gift they receive an original cuddly stork.
The free Museumkwartier Children’s Passport is an initiative of eight institutions in The Hague: Escher in het Paleis, Mauritshuis, Museum Bredius, the Kloosterkerk, Pulchri, Diligentia, The Hague Historical Museum and the Royal Theater. The aim is to encourage parents with children between the ages of 6 and 12 to visit the cultural institutions in the Museum Quarter. Theme of the Museum Quarter is Old Masters & New Heroes. The children are the great ‘new heroes’ who go treasure hunt in the institutions with the passport.
The guide in the passport full of interesting stories is the stork Cornelis. With the passport in hand, children visit the eight institutions, looking for special items. After each visit they receive a sticker in the passport and a present. When they have collected all eight stickers, they can pick up a cuddly stork at The Hague Info Store (formerly VVV).
The Museumkwartier Children’s Passport can be downloaded free of charge from THIS (Spui 68) or any of the eight cultural institutions.
