Muzee Scheveningen is one of Scheveningen’s cultural hotspots and welcomes around 40,000 visitors every year. On 24 April 2020, The Hague’s advisory board for arts and culture advised against subsidising Muzee Scheveningen in their policy plans for the period 2021–2024. Please consider signing the petition asking to re-evaluate the museum’s funding application. So far, over 7,500 people have signed the petition, and the museum hopes to reach at least 10,000 signatures. Your support would be greatly appreciated.
