At Het Nieuwe Instituut, it’s all about architecture, design and digital culture. Here, children, young people and their families discover how everything around them is designed. Het Nieuwe Instituut is free for children and young people up to 18 years old.


FamilieFest (age 4 to 12)

Every school holiday (excepting the summer holidays) Het Nieuwe Instituut organises a FamilieFest. A day of fun activities for the whole family around a central theme. The next FamilieFest will take place in the spring.

Sonneveld House

Staying with Leonard (age 6 +)

In this children’s audio tour, Leonard, the grandson of Mr and Mrs Sonneveld, takes us on a tour of discovery through his grandparents’ house (they had the house specially designed and built for their family in 1933). With the help of Leonard’s suitcase, children discover the special role that design plays in the house. They learn all the secrets of the house and find out more than their parents!

Sonneveld House is free for children up to the age of 18. School groups can book a detour, and there are also special detours for adults in Sonneveld House.
