Millennials and museums
The Golden Hour is in line with the wishes of millennials to see more special programs and parties in museums. Recent research * also shows that three-quarters of millennials sometimes visit a museum. Nearly 80% of this group prefers to do this together than to do it alone and preferably on weekends. A get together with friends in Enschede or Amsterdam seems to be the perfect cultural outing.
Golden Hour: part of the National Museum Week
The Golden Hour is part of the fourth edition of the National Museum Week, which takes place this year from 9 to 15 April. During this week more than 400 museums present their collections in an unprecedented manner and often with extra attractive activities. The purpose of the National Museum Week is to reach groups who rarely or never visit museums. More information and all activities can be found at Nationalemuseumweek.nl.
