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 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 age 18 and under.


Pssst! Fan of photography? The photo studio is ready in the Lab: Looking Beyond. Research the portraits of famous photographers. Get inspired by details and new discoveries. And then: go for it! Take a picture of your father, grandma or big sister. No fancy poses, but a natural portrait. Exciting? The quotes on the walls will help you on the way. Check: light, position, timing. Ready… flash! Share your result directly online and see your own picture on the big screen. Did you manage to make a natural portrait?

The Lab is made possible thanks to the support of the Rabobank and Staedtler


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.
