The museum will celebrate Dutch-American Friendship Day on April 22, which commemorates April 19, 1782, the day that John Adams, who would later become the second president of the U.S., was received by the states general in The Hague, Netherlands, and recognized as minister plenipotentiary of the U.S. It was also the day that the house he had purchased at Fluwelen Burgwal 18 in The Hague was to become the first American embassy in the world. Activities will include Dutch historical information, games and crafts.
The museum will present King’s Day, a celebration of the birthday of King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands, on April 29, in which visitors can learn about the Dutch royal family and participate in games and a crown-making craft activity.
