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

From April 2020 we are going to organize more fun workshops for kids where the children can be creative and at the same time learn more about plants in a playful way. We are going to paint Easter eggs with plants, add a bit of a horror with carnivorous plants, examine prickly cacti,  and much more.

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

Due to the Corona virus all workshops for kids scheduled till 31 August have been canceled. Please check our website Agenda and our Facebook pages for updates on workshops after August 2020.


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.


In July 2019 our garden for the first time took children (with parents) on an Expedition to Africa. In 2021 the Expedition will go to Asia, so if you are in for an adventure come along! At the entrance each child receives a passport to ‘travel’ to different countries throughout the garden. It is a fun day with lots of activities for kids between 5 and 12 years old.

Admission children incl. passport: € 6,-  (Museumjaarkaart not valid for kids)
Admission adults: € 6,- /Admission 65+: € 3,-


In October our garden becomes a haunted Halloween venue. On Friday October 23rd kids from 5 – 12 years old can come and visit the spooky greenhouses, roast marshmallows and make some typical Halloween decorations. Dressing up is not a must, but much more fun

Admission children incl. stamp card: € 6,-  (Museumjaarkaart not valid for kids)
Admission adults: € 6,- /Admission 65+: € 3,-

Science Day

The last Sunday in October is Science Day in our garden and Science Centre Delft. We have fun games and activities for kids and families, like examining water samples, seeing how glass is made and what plants look like from the inside. Kids can also discover crawly insects, unravel plant DNA and do the fruit quiz. And maybe even see robots in our ponds.

Free admission.

On Saturday 19 December 2020 families with kids can do fun things in a decorated Christmas garden during our Kerstival. As you walk along our Christmas trees you can guess and sing Christmas songs. And once you are inside you can make nice Christmas decorations and cards. Let’s hope the garden is covered with snow that day!

Admission children incl. stamp card: € 6,-  (Museumjaarkaart not valid for kids)
