At Sound and Vision The Hague, we actively unite people in researching and discussing how we live in media. By doing so, we hope to contribute to a free and open society in which mutual understanding, attention, contact, reliability, accessibility, pluriformity and freedom of the press are core values.

Sound and Vision wants to contribute to the interpretation and experience of the importance of freedom of information and media in the broadest sense of the word. The activities in Hilversum and in The Hague are designed from this perspective.
Sound and Vision Hilversum
At the Media Park in Hilversum, visitors experience how we live in media. By showing how media develop and by providing insight in how this affects our lives. We make visitors aware that they are not only consumers, but also producers and influencers. We do this through the museum, education, debates, research and through our growing archive full of radio, television, written press, video content and games. We work intensively with creative media makers and companies that use the archive for a variety of productions.
Sound and Vision The Hague
The Hague, the city where (international) news is made daily, is the place to learn to critically consider political news provision. Together with our audience, we investigate the role media play in our democracy and how they can contribute to an open and free society. Logical and current themes in The Hague as “City of Peace and Justice”. In our museum, the power play between politicians, journalists and interest groups, citizens and media is central. We host exhibitions and debates and we develop workshops. As in Hilversum, we consciously strengthen the ties with media makers, with a special focus on professionals in the journalistic domain.
