Visit Natuurmuseum Brabant with your (grand)children

Date: Time: 09:30 Location: Natuurmuseum Brabant (Tilburg)

Are your children or grandchildren (aged 9-12) interested in plants, animals, stones, and fossils? Then we invite you to a fun, instructive morning in Natuurmuseum Brabant on Sunday, May 16! In this family-friendly natural history museum, we will go on a voyage of discovery through nature.

The children can dissect owl pellets and Professor Marcel Zeelenberg will present a lecture (in Dutch). In this way, they not only learn about nature, but they are also introduced to research conducted at Tilburg University. Of course we will take a look around the museum! This activity is organized in collaboration with Tilburg University Junior.
