Museums to be free one day a week

Culture minister Ronald Plasterk plans to make the country’s 19 national museums free on Wednesday afternoons, newspaper Trouw reports on Friday.

The paper says the plan is set to cost €1m, not €4m as earlier thought.
The museums, including Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum and the Open Air museum in Arnhem, store and exhibit the national art and culture collection.
