families

At the Stedelijk Museum there is always something to do for families and children. Be an artist yourself and create great things in our workshops or Family Lab, take part in some awesome tours through the museum or join some of our other family activities. And on top of all this, the Stedelijk is free for everyone under 18.

FAMILY LAB: TINGUELY’S HEADQUARTERS

The artist Jean Tinguely thought that an artwork isn’t finished until it moves. So do your part! Step inside Tinguely’s Headquarters and bring his ideas to life. Build an useless machine and get the museum moving. There’s no such thing as standing still!

The Family Lab is sponsored by the Rabobank.

Flip it with Tinguely

Design your own machine! Pick one up at the Family lab or at the Information desk.

Curious visitors aged 6 to 12 can visit the new studios on Sunday afternoon and take a special workshop with an artist or designer! So get creative and let the experts show you how it’s done.
