I found it exciting but also a bit scary


A journey of discovery

Thankfully, most of us know about disasters and conflicts only from newspapers and TV. Such events occur elsewhere in the world, far away. In its museum, Humanity House brings them nearer. Embark on a journey through the museum and see, hear and experience personally what it must feel like to have to survive in an area affected by conflict or disaster.

It’s an impressive journey on which you imagine the unimaginable. A journey of discovery through the museum makes the unimaginable imaginable. It’s as if you find yourself in the place of a refugee.

Attention! Humanity House renews ‘The Experience’

Due to renovation our main exhibition ‘The Experience’ will be closed from December 25th to January 7th. We do, however, invite you to come visit our temporary exhibition ‘The Asylum Engine’ free of cost. This is your last chance, because the exhibition will be gone after  the7th of January!

From January 8th to February 10th  The Experience will be partially accessible. Throughout the whole renovation period you are more than welcome in our café for a coffee or a snack. The renewed experience will be open from the 10th of February. Come and meet the eight new ‘inhabitants’ of the Humanity House!

More than a museum

The Humanity House is more than a museum. It is a platform for staging live-interviews, debates, exhibitions, events & festivals, film screenings and other activities. And it offers education programmes for schools to help children understand what life is like in a refugee camp. Special programmes are also available for students.

Children aged 10 and older

Owing to the realistic and overwhelming nature of the exhibition, the museum is suitable for children aged 10 and older only. Children aged from 8 to 10 are allowed into the exhibition accompanied by an adult.
