Museum Night in The Hague

A Thousand and One Nights at The Mesdag Collection

During Museum Night in The Hague The Mesdag Collection was dominated by the world of A Thousand and One Nights.Visitors could see the exhibition Imagining the Orient, smoke a hookah in the garden, take a bellydancing workshop and listen to splendid Arabic music while enjoying a drink and canapés.

Public campaign
The museum had also organised a public campaign centred on an intriguing item in the collection, a Dervish staff with a devil’s head. Visitors were asked to think what this object might be and suggest its function. The solution was revealed on Museum Night. The best, funniest and most original suggestions were awarded a prize.

Museum Night in The Hague
The fourth edition of Museum Night in The Hague opened spectacularly with video and light art, the Kern Koppen and Juvat Westendorp. The 41 participating museums and cultural institutions were visited by 10,000 culture lovers until deep into the night.
