Activities for kids

Kids workshops and family activities like the annual Expeditions, Halloween, Science Day and our Kerstival: they all are fun events for kids of all ages to learn about plants and plant science. 

Workshops for kids

During the summer holidays kids can join a fun workshop every Wednesday afternoon. Children can be creative and at the same time learn more about plants in a playful way. You can dive into scary carnivorous plants, examine prickly cacti, or make your own piece of soap. Go to the agenda or Facebook for more information.

For kids between 5 - 12 years old.
Costs: € 5 per child (Museumjaarkaart for children not valid)
The workshops are given in Dutch.

We follow the RIVM corona guidelines. Children under 9 years of age must be accompanied by an adult, older children do not need to be accompanied.


For children up to 12 years old who can read and write we have fun free ‘speurtochten’. They have to search the garden for letters to make up a plant or nature related word. They get to know a bit more about nature and receive a small appropriate gift when the solution is found. There is a new ‘speurtocht’ every quarter.

Small children who cannot yet read and write can do a special ‘speurtocht’ and search the garden for certain objects, animals and persons.


Mark Saturday 12 September 2020 in your agenda, because then our special edition Corona Expedition for kids from 5 – 12 takes place in our garden. At the entrance each child receives instructions and then goes on expedition throughout the garden. It is a fun day with lots of activities around health for humans and.

Due to the corona measures there are two time slots: 10:00 – 13:00 (full = full) and 13:30 – 16:30 (full = full). To avoid a queue on the day itself tickets can be bought in advance at our MuseumShop on 5 and 11 September between 10:00 – 16:30.
