Travel to Morocco in the Tropenmuseum Junior

Visit the hands-on exhibition about Morocco, ZieZo Marokko, from 17 October 2015 

On 17 October the Moroccan experience, ZieZo Marokko, opens in the Tropenmuseum Junior. Young and old travel together with Esmaa, Fatima, Nasrdin and Yousef. They talk about their lives: about their parents’ country, what it was like to grow up in the Netherlands, what they’ve discovered in Morocco and what inspires them. ZieZo Marokko is a theatrical spectacle that excites all the senses.


The journey starts in the plane. Having landed in Morocco a tour guide takes the visitors through the medina, a maze of narrow streets and alleys. Behind every door and round each corner, a new surprise awaits. You can do wall graffiti in calligraphy or puzzle over a mosaic pattern in the courtyard of a Riad. You can play an aroma game in the kitchen or arrange a Moroccan fashion shop window.

Oldest children’s museum in the Netherlands

The Tropenmuseum Junior first opened its doors 40 years ago, also with an exhibition about Morocco. It’s the oldest children’s museum in the Netherlands and one of the oldest in Europe. The museum is renowned for its appealing teaching method: seeing, touching, experiencing and participating. The experience is a unique combination of the museum collection, personal stories and activities in a theatrical environment. The Tropenmuseum Junior’s general objective is to stimulate an open outlook.
