Museumnacht 2019

During Museumnacht – November 2nd – Tour guides Mahmoud Lababidi and Mostafa Betaree will take you into the old city of Aleppo and will tell you all about daily life in Aleppo before the war.


Museumnacht 2019 – Throwback to Aleppo event

Have you ever wondered what Aleppo was like before the war? Until 2011, it was a beautiful city bustling with art, culture, and diversity.



On Museumnacht we invite you to listen to the heartbeat of Aleppo through the perspectives of several people who called it home, like Mostafa Betaree and Mahmoud Lababidi. Mahmoud organized guided tours of the city for ten years. He fled with his family in 2011 and came to the Netherlands, where he will now take you on a tour through the ruined city through the exhibit Living Aleppo, and transport you to life before the war.



Entrance price: you need a Museumnacht ticket!



Living Aleppo is an intricate small-scale model of Aleppo as it is today, developed in collaboration with 12 people from the city. Not just an art installation or a political statement, it tells the stories from these 12 poignant human perspectives.

Syrian music will also brighten up the night every 15 minutes an hour. We are happy to welcome the musical talents of singer Jawa Manla. Syrian finger food and drinks top off the night.
