Hello Kitty is coming to the Netherlands according to Japan Museum SieboldHuis.

From September 10 until November 20, Japan Museum SieboldHuis will dedicate an entire family exhibition to the cute white Japanese kitten with the red bow. ‘Hello Kitty – Hello Holland’ is the first overview exhibition about Hello Kitty in a museum in the Netherlands. Numerous Hello Kitty objects will be displayed, ranging from the first designs of the 1970s to the Holland Kitty limited edition that was especially made for this exhibition.

The SieboldHuis museum will take you on a journey through Hello Kitty’s world. You’ll get to know her family, her friends, her favorite food and where she lives.

In the exhibition you’ll be able to learn all about Hello Kitty since her birth in 1974. How have her appearance and design changed? How did she conquer the world? What are her Japanese roots? And why do we all love her so much? Ample attention will be given how Hello Kitty appeals to all her fans: young (or grown-up) girls, collectors, artists and fashion designers.
