Theatre, music & performances for children

Amsterdam’s rich cultural scene offers a wide variety of entertainment options for children, including a couple of theatres that only stage performances for kids.

Cultural fun for kids

Amsterdam’s most prestigious music venues also schedule recurring workshops and (interactive) performances for the smallest music lovers. If you’d rather just kick back and relax, don’t forget Amsterdam’s many cinemas. The majority of children’s films are screened in both Dutch and their original language, which is often English. When you’re checking the movie agenda, look for films with OV (meaning original version) after the title.
