To the museum on Thursday evening? A delightful new tradition.

Wander through the galleries of the KMSKA in the evening and enjoy its finest collection. On Thursday evenings, the KMSKA will be keeping its doors open after hours for anyone with a museum ticket. The KMSKA thus initiates a new tradition and encourages you to cast your finest gaze.

A special evening

The museum is about more than just looking. It is also a creative venue where artists work and meet. With the Finest Evenings, we hope to provide you with an intense and fine experience. Our Artists in Residence are inspired by the beautiful building, the unique collection and the fascinating stories of the KMSKA. On Thursday evenings, you can let yourself be surprised by unexpected contemporary interpretations in words, music, images, performances and more. Welcome to the finest evenings!

And there's more...

Every nocturne, a museum employee plays his or her fondest music in the unique setting of the De Keyser Room. The pop-up Madonna Cocktail Bar will provide the tastiest drink in the process.

Also this fall

Artist in Residence Peeping Tom brings the international co-production La Visita, created especially for KMSKA. In this installation-performance in the museum setting, live performance and film complement each other. The dislocation and surrealism that characterize Peeping Tom's work creep into the museum. Premiere 26.11, screenings 28-29.11. Not to be missed, keep an eye on the website.
