Light Festival


We're opening again! Celebrate the winter with the annual Festival of Light in Museumpark Orientalis.

From December 12th till January 10th we traditionally open our doors for the Festival of Light. Of course this year we will make some adjustments, so we can offer you a complete Corona-proof day out. That's why this year we celebrate Festival of Light not for two, but for four weeks! This will spread the crowds and allow you to responsibly enjoy winter fun, including Europe's largest nativity scene and a new exhibition of nativity scenes from our own collection.

So save the date... the program will follow soon!

Due to pandemic Museumpark Orientalis is closed. We hope to open again in May.
