Every Friday night, the Dutch landmark extends its visiting hours to 22.00, adding a variety of activities, entertainment and a cocktail bar to liven the mood.
As an added attraction, the museum's central lobby turns into a 'blue lounge' where comfy armchairs are set up next to a DJ booth and bar.
While sipping their favourite spirits and enjoying the latest hits from the capital's music scene, visitors can take people watching to the next dimension as the lounge transforms into a massive blue screen.
Creating the impression of art in action, the festivities are projected onto a nearby wall and blended with one of Van Gogh's famous paintings.

Whether it is a theatrical performance, guest lectures, poetry readings or more, the museum goes out of its way to plan activities that both complement and compound the museum experience.
