Princess Laurentien Opened an Exhibition
On Sunday March 20, Princess Laurentien inaugurated the new exhibition about ‘Kikker’ (Frog) at the Children’s Museum. The opening was also to celebrate the end of the renovation of the Children’s Museum.
The exhibition is inspired by ‘Kikker’, the main character from the works of writer and illustrator Max Velthuijs (1923-2005). ‘Kikker’ is one of the permanent exhibitions at the Children’s Museum.
In the exhibition, children literally step into Kikker’s world. The exhibition also aims to stimulate the imagination and invite game-play.
Princess Laurentien opened the exhibition together with the director of the museum, Laura van der Eijk. The opening is also the kickoff of the annual Ten Frog Days, which begun on Monday, March 21.
‘Kikker’ is the second permanent exhibition of the Children’s Museum. In December, another opened for children between 8 and 13 years called ‘Papira’, an adventure exploring the world of children’s and their own imagination.
This museum is housed in the building of the Royal Library in The Hague as part of the Literary Museum.Filed under Dutch Royals
