Families and children are invited to join us for the best edition of FamilieFest where the most popular workshops from the past year will return. Race all your friends to the finish line with your self-made racecar, create and eat the craziest (and most delicious) alien sandwich, and get your face painted like your favorite animal. Bring along all your best friends, family members, neighbours or classmates and (re)experience it all!

- WHOOSH! There goes the giraffe-mobile, the rainbow carriage and the flying truck. Who do you think will win the Super Duper Race? You and your BFFs (Best FamilieFest Friends) create your own super-duper race car to race against each other. Ready, set, GO!
Feel free to bring your own mini car to transform into a super-duper race car!
When your belly starts making rumbling noises during all the fun and adventurous workshops, you can join us at the Bizarre Bread Bar. Imagine and build your own unique sandwich. Are you using alien not, blood jam or perhaps ladybug poop? You get to decide yourself. Bon appétit!
Our big, beautiful, kind, radiant, yellow sun is working overtime to keep us happy and to keep us warm from time to time. As a way to say thank you, you can create a present for this bright shining star during Sun and Shadowland. Step into this magical glow-in-the-dark realm and give thanks to the big ball of gas in the sky.
Submerge yourself into the ancient world of the Japanese tie-dye technique Shibori. Get to work, and create a vibrant pattern. Use your hands, eyes, arms and a lot of blue ink and make a Terrific Tie-Dye Tapestry with various patterns. What will it look like in the end? Do not forget to bring your art work home to hang on the wall so you can admire it forever!
Invent your own vent-beast during Building Breezy Beasts. Use the invisible air flowing through the museum building to bring your creation to life. You and your Breezy Beast can then join us on the dance floor. It will be a party that will blow you away!
Bring your entire family! During this edition of FamilieFest. We have activities for all ages: there will be a baby corner for the little ones, you can also dance with the Senster robot and get your face painted.
Do you have a Rotterdampas or Museum Pass? You can join the festivities for free and without registration! The only thing you need to do is to bring your Rotterdampas or Museum Pass.
Do you want to participate with your BSO-group? That's possible! You can sign up for free by sending an e-mail with the subject line: FamilieFest: BFF to firstname.lastname@example.org.
FamilieFest is an event that takes place at the Nieuwe Instituut during each school break, and you and your family are invited! It is a day filled with educational workshops and fun activities for children from 4-12 years old. Each edition is organised around a theme, such as solar energy or magical realms. Will you join us on this adventure?
