The Museon in The Hague is a museum for culture and science. Visitors are inspired to discover the world and treat it with respect. In the central exhibition One Planet you learn in a fun way what you can do yourself to keep our earth livable.
The temporary exhibitions are always interactive and suitable for the whole family. The themes are diverse and include, for example, space travel, volcanoes, climate change, evolution or the Romans! In addition, visitors can always visit the NatGeo Focus Gallery, National Geography's permanent photo exhibition, with various themes.
In the Museon you learn by looking, listening, reading and especially by doing a lot of things yourself. There is always something going on, you don't have to talk softly and you can touch a lot. The museum is never the same, because there are constantly changing exhibitions and many activities for the whole family.
One Planet, the new central exhibition in the Museum, is based on the seventeen Sustainable Development Goals formulated by the United Nations. In One Planet you learn in an interactive and personal way that everyone can make a valuable contribution to a liveable planet. Examples of themes covered are: overfishing, water pollution, energy, refugees, climate change and discrimination.
It is a fun, interesting and educational exhibition for the whole family with a lot of interaction where visitors get a playful answer to the question of how we all together can keep the earth liveable and healthy.
