The Museumkaart advantage

Not sure what to do with the kids over the long summer break? Take them to one of the hundreds of unique, kid-friendly, inspiring and fun museums in the Netherlands!

The Museumkaart (museum card) is an annual membership card available to (temporary or permanent) Dutch residents which gives unlimited free entry to approximately 400 museums in the Netherlands – including 38 museums in Amsterdam.

Did you know that TIC organizes activities that feature museums within the Netherlands at least once or twice a year? Did you know that whether or not you are visiting a museum with TIC or on your own, you can gain entrance often at a reduced price or for free with the Museumkaart?

The Museumkaart card program (also known as the Museumjaarkaart or MJK) has been running since 1981 and now has over 1 million card holders.

Currently you can see highlighted museums that have special programs running just for kids on THIS page. Three well-known museums in Tilburg that are always great for the kids are De Pont, De Textielmuseum and De Natuurmuseum. With the Museumkaart, you can get in free to all three!

You can apply for a Museumkaart at museumkaart.nl (Dutch only).  You can also purchase a temporary (tijdelijk) Museumkaart over-the-counter at various museum (not all Dutch museums accept the Museumkaart); the list of museums can be checked on the website.

The following purchase prices are valid at least until 30 June 2018:
Adult Museumkaart €59.90
Child (age 0-18) Museumkaart €32.45

The card is great for the ability to just pop into a museum for 30 minutes and visit a new exhibition – and you won’t feel the pressure to see everything. Considering the current entry fees (€15-17.50) to get into each of the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, Hermitage, Maritime Museum, NEMO and Stedelijk – means the card quickly pays for itself after just 4 visits. For expats and residents it can offer fantastic value over the whole year.

A brief summary of the book:
In their youth, Florentino Ariza and Fermina Daza fall passionately in love. When Fermina eventually chooses to marry a wealthy, well-born doctor, Florentino is devastated, but he is a romantic. As he rises in his business career he whiles away the years in 622 affairs–yet he reserves his heart for Fermina. Her husband dies at last, and Florentino purposefully attends the funeral. Fifty years, nine months, and four days after he first declared his love for Fermina, he will do so again.

This critically acclaimed book will be great reading on your summer getaway, so we hope you will read it and join us to discuss the book and reconnect after the summer.

TIC Bowling Borrel review

by Hoda Barzegaran

I want to thank all the people who were involved in putting together the Dolfijn bowling center event.  We had so much fun from the beginning till the end. It started with a great welcome from Mala’s friendly and smiley face and a lot of help on how to get prepare.

And, it continued with playing and mingling with lovely people from different countries while we were enjoying our drinks. It was like being with old friends, even though we had all just met. What a wonderful experience!

After one hour of bowling practically every one stayed longer. we all sat around a big table like a big family and got a chance to talk more and to know each other better. It was an awesome evening. Can’t wait to see everyone again in TICnic on June 16!
