Eat and drink

Would you like to have dinner before your visit, or a drink afterwards? You are welcome in MILK, our café! We are open for lunch and dinner, but also for drinks or a nice cup of coffee. 

The entrance of MILK is located at Marnixstraat 409.

Opening hours
The Dutch government has cancelled all events and gatherings of over 100 attendees in The Netherlands until March 31st  in order to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Due to this measure, MILK has also closed our doors effective immediately until March 31st. Currently, we’re working hard to find replacement dates where possible and we aim to announce these new dates by Thursday March 26th. Unfortunately, we are not able to provide more clarity on this right away due this being an exceptional situation.

Melkweg Expo is an open platform and exhibition space for exhibitions of innovative contemporary photography. Every month we focus on new emerging talent. Due to its location Leidseplein and atypical opening hours, not only an interested art public visits the Expo, but spontaneous encounters and confrontations with a wide audience are possible. Melkweg Expo is an approachable stage where young people get in touch with art and culture in a casual way. It’s also the only photography venue open until 23:00. 

Melkweg Expo shows pop culture in all its aspects: art that concerns identity, our society or a new emerging talent. By showing quality in an accessible way we want to reach people who don’t often visit an exhibition and hope to highlight topics which open the eyes of the audience. Through a contemporary, diverse program, actual subjects, the diversity of photographers and a monthly change of exhibition, Melkweg Expo still captures the attention of the public and media.
