Museum by Candlelight

See The Fan Museum in a new light, following the event’s success in 2022!

From 13th to 16th December from 16h30-19h00, The Fan Museum will open later than usual to welcome its visitors into a magical new take on its exhibition spaces, illuminated almost entirely by candles and underscored by classical festive favourites.

During these four evenings, the Orangery reopens its doors for visitors to enjoy a complimentary drink of mulled wine, cider or juice to fend of the crisp winter air.

Ticketholders must book in advance. Tickets will not be offered on the door.

Please note the Museum will be open to the general public as usual from 13h00-15h30, with strict last entries at 15h00, for the duration of Museum by Candlelight.



With special thanks to The Friends of The Fan Museum for supporting this event.
