  • The humanity house is an intense, powerful and deeply human experience. Become a refugee, see your home in shambles, live the confusion and trepidation as you walk away from your life as it was. Watch...  more »
  • It's more an experiential museum. For people who already have a lot of knowledge of refugee claims of refugees it is maybe some soft but still worth it to be a small part of having to flee. In particular, the sounds that you hear make an impression. And at the end the stories of a number of refugees themselves. It does otherwise you look at refugees and their flight story. Particularly so. Worth and also very suitable for children. Seen stairs etc. it is not suitable for disabled access. There is a nice little Cafe with also a small lunch menu.

  • The Humanity House was a wonderful edition to my experience in the Netherlands. My family is rooted in a history of refugees from the Algerian Genocide to the Holocaust, so I was raised to understand and appreciate the life of modern day immigrants. However, the Humanity House managed to paint a better picture than my parents ever could. The museum manages to make the experiences of a refugee extremely personal. I don't want to spoil anything, so I won't go into great detail, but entering the Humanity House is like entering a new life. The very last room almost made me cry. The staff give you a big piece of paper that has questions on it for you to fill out during your journey. This is a nice touch, as it gets people to think more. The very last question is "how would you describe the Humanity House in one word". The problem with this question is that I can't limit this wonderful place to only a few letters. If I had to, it would either be 'thought-provoking' or 'heart-breaking'. The staff is also brilliant. They are so kind and so patient. They are knowledgeable and can answer any questions well, but most importantly, they are wonderful people. There is nothing negative that I can say about the Humanity House. It's a beautiful addition to a beautiful city. This is a must if you are visiting Den Haag or any surrounding areas. (Side note: the question sheet asks "whom did you meet", but this is grammatically incorrect. It's either "who did you meet", or "with whom did you meet". This kinda triggered me, but I can't hold this against the place. 'Whom' is such an obscure grammatical rule, anyway).
  • I absolutely recommend this museum for both children and adults. The museum offer experiential exhibits on human interest topics. My latest visit was for the refugee exhibit. You could follow the tracks of a refugee and learn, see, hear and smell what they do along their journeys. At the end, there were virtual exhibits to "meet" the refugees.
  • Beautifully crafted. An immersive experience worth doing. I was blown away by the construction, and left with new understanding of the refugee situation.
  • Everybody need to visit this museum to understand what migrants go through so they can be more humane when dealing with human suffering
  • Great place for exhibitions and thoughtful discussions, always try and mostly succeed to stay relevant
