Awesome museum for kids

and adults

Museum suitable for children? Definitely!

Also for children's parties or BSO activity


Museum Joure is a great museum for children - and for adults as well. Because make and experience, who doesn't want that. Yes, there is a lot to see and do in our making museum. And in the vacations we go the extra mile for children: then we open The Make Factory.

Kinderen in het museum ‘oan it wurk’

Can't there be enough for you to do? Then take a toolbox "Oan it wurk!" at the entrance. Great fun with your (grand)parents, babysitter, as a BSO outing, children's party or family day. The worksheets in the box are tailored to children in the lower, middle and upper grades of elementary school. So there is fun for everyone.

Using the box, you will do all kinds of fun things, such as make a tea bag, grind coffee, punch your name, trace Frisian clocks and print a bookmark. It also includes a coupon for something delicious at Museum store De Witte Os. Will you make?

For children up to 3 years of age, admission is free. Tickets always include lemonade, tea or coffee.

“Superleuk museum, hebben we een paar uur in rond gelopen. Voor ouders nostalgie, voor kinderen leuk om actief bezig te zijn. Zowel binnen als buiten vanalles te zien 👌”

Also fun museum for children during vacations

During school vacations, The Make Factory of Museum Joure opens. This activity program is organized by the museum for children from about 4 to 14 years and is supervised by our museum teacher. Every vacation a new theme, so every vacation something new (to) make!

During spring break there is Help pake and beppe through the vacations, then the museum is completely free for children.

Going to the museum with all the kids in the class?

Museum Joure is also great fun during school hours. Take a look at our education programs.

swing garden

Children also enjoy playing in the museum garden

When the weather is nice, the museum garden is also a place full of fun. Between the old trees and warehouses hang beautiful, large swings. Children float away happily together with friends, parents or grandparents. In summer, there are also all kinds of fun making activities in the garden.

"Really a nice and beautiful museum. Lots of activities for children. Very nice swings in the coffee garden. Highly recommended for young and old."
