Open Museum weekend

13 May 2023 - 14 May 2023

During the Open Museum Weekend, on 13 and 14 May, all museums in the municipality of Schagen will open their doors! The municipality of Schagen has no less than 11 museums. Each gem with its own story. During the Open Museum Weekend, all museums are free to enter between 11:00 AM and 4:00 PM. There are also special activities at all museums for both youth and adults in which you can participate or admire performances. Unique experiences that only take place during this weekend and make a visit extra special.

Extra activities
In addition to the fact that all museums can be visited, each museum organizes special activities that can only be experienced during this weekend. For example, there are music performances and guided tours that are provided by a guide or by actors. You can also have coins or shards brought by an archaeologist identified, visit a militaria and book market and take a seat with a quick draftsman. Special and fun activities are also organized for children. From old Dutch children’s games to a treasure hunt through the museum or a beachcomber’s treasure hunt on the beach and from baking pancakes to a course in origami folding. You can also take a seat in one of the old carriages from the past and have your picture taken, admire a fire brigade ladder truck from 1955 or wrap yourself in clothing from the past. In addition, you can get a Museum Passport in every museum and have it stamped. With a full passport you have a chance to win a VVV voucher worth € 100. This promotion runs all year round. In short… There is a lot to experience! For information about the participating museums, see www.museaschagen.nl.

Windmill ‘de Hoop’
Winmill ‘de Hoop’ is also taking part in the museum weekend. Because the museum weekend is the same as the Open Mill Days, the mill is open from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Various activities are organized at the mill. Of course, the mill can be visited free of charge and, in good weather conditions, the blades will turn and wheat will be ground into flour. In addition, a village walk will take place on Saturday at 1:00 PM and on Sunday at 11:30 AM led by Dirk Smit. During this one-hour walk, the historical sites (including the old site of the mill) are visited. Pancakes are baked on Sunday from 13:00.

Vehicle Day (cancelled)

24 September 2023 - 24 September 2023

We regret to inform you today that the planned Beetle Day at Molen De Hoop on Sunday September 24 will not take place due to a shortage of registrations. We are saddened to have to make this decision, given the enthusiasm and commitment of many of you to this event.

After two successful editions of the Vehicle Day at Molen De Hoop, we had hoped that the Beetle Day would be an equally great success. We were excited to gather at this unique location at Korenmolen De Hoop in ‘t Zand, and we were confident that it would be a day full of fun and admiration for Beetle enthusiasts and families.

Unfortunately, the number of registrations did not meet our expectations, and this has left us with no choice but to cancel the event. We understand that many of you have been looking forward to this day, and we sincerely apologize for any disappointment.

For those who had already registered their Beetle or were otherwise involved in the organization of this day, we would like to thank you for your enthusiasm and support. Your willingness to participate in this event was highly appreciated, and we are sorry that we cannot meet your expectations this time.

We hope you understand our decision and look forward to welcoming you again to other events and activities in the future. If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact us at angela_verschuur@hotmail.com.

Once again, we sincerely apologize for this cancellation and thank you for your understanding.
