Extended Bosch Opening Hours
April 12, 2016
Last two weeks Hieronymus Bosch exhibition open longer
Open continuously for 39 hours on the last weekend
Het Noordbrabants Museum is going to be extending its opening hours for the exceptionally successful exhibition, ‘Hieronymus Bosch – Visions of genius’ for one last time. The museum will be open daily from 8 am to 1 am in the May holiday period from 22nd April to 6th May. It will even be open all night on 7th May. From 8 am, Saturday 7th May to 11 pm, Sunday 8th May, the museum will be open continuously for 39 hours. The extension to the opening hours is to meet the huge unremitting demand for tickets from within and outside of Holland. The extra tickets which this will make available can be booked from today via tickets.hnbm.nl.
The night-time opening on Saturday 7th May will be celebrated in the museum as the 'Night of the Owl', a reference to the nocturnal animal so frequently depicted by Bosch. During these special nocturnal opening hours, visitors will be treated to musical intermezzos. The museum restaurant is open all night.
Première ‘Bosch by Night’
The exhibition ' Hieronymus Bosch - Visions of genius' will be closing on Sunday 8th May 2016 but the same evening, at 10.00 pm, the sound and light show, ‘Bosch by Night’ will start at the Markt in ’s-Hertogenbosch [Den Bosch]. Figures and themes from Bosch's triptych, The Garden of Earthly Delights (Madrid, Museo Nacional del Prado) will be brought to life by means of 'video mapping' in a concept that has been developed with the Efteling amusement park. The show will be projected on Hieronymus Bosch's family studio 'De Kleine Winst' ['The Small Profit'] and the four buildings to the right of it.
Huge interest in Bosch
More than 220,000 people have visited the exhibition dedicated to the medieval master, Hieronymus Bosch, since it opened on 13th February and a total of more than 380,000 tickets have already been sold. The unique exhibition cannot be extended so the decision was taken to extend the opening hours for a third time to allow as many people as possible a last chance to see it. Never before have so many works returned to his city, ’s-Hertogenbosch, also known as Den Bosch, where they were painted or drawn more than 500 years ago.
