On the Saturday of Pentecost weekend – 7 June – you can participate in two family outings to Eelde:
Kid’s Day at Airport Eelde
11 a.m. – 3 p.m. | Tickets: € 2 | University of Groningen staff pay € 1 per ticket
At Groningen Airport Eelde there are all sorts of things to do: watch demonstrations, visit jet-speed kids’ lectures, do fun experiments and you can even pay a visit to the flight control tower! You can have your picture taken with an impressive armoured car, with birds of prey or with a huge fire engine. And to top it all off: you can win an aeroplane ride over Groningen! You will learn a lot, but most of all it will be a fun day out!
Nijsinghhuis Art Visit
11 a.m. – 3 p.m. | Tickets: € 4 | University of Groningen staff pay € 2 per ticket
Another option is to pay a visit to the Nijsinghhuis at Museum de Buitenplaats in Eelde. Here you can admire murals by Matthijs Röling. Children will also enjoy themselves: there is a Dick Bruna exhibition where kids can do fun assignments.
