    Treasure hunt Manahahtáanung or New Amsterdam? The Indigenous Story Behind New York

    With the treasure hunt accompanying the exhibition Manahahtáanung or New Amsterdam? The Indigenous Story Behind New York, children aged 8 and up are transported into the story of the Lenape, the original inhabitants of what is now New York. What was it like for them when suddenly the Dutch came from far across the sea to claim their land? What exactly did the Dutch come to do there? And did it all go fairly? By means of a comic book, created by Anouschka Boswijk, and an accompanying treasure hunt, you will go on an exploration to answer these questions, and much more! For a preview of the comic book, see below. It will also be available in English.

    From May 16, available for free pickup at the Amsterdam Museum on the Amstel box office
