Vogel in vlucht natuur

Visit Natuurmuseum Brabant

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

If you or your (grand-)children are interested in plants, animals, minerals, and fossils? Then we invite you for a visit to the Brabant Nature Museum. In this family-friendly museum, we will go on a nature discovery tour. This activity was scheduled for May 16, but because the museums are not open yet, it will be postponed to Sunday, October 17. This activity is suitable for all ages.

For children there are extra activities depending on their age. For example, 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.
