About media museum Sound and Vision The Hague

In our museum you will learn everything about media through games, tests and examples. Do you recognize Fake News? Where are your limits when it comes to humor? And how good are residents of The Hague at attracting attention in the media? You can discover it all at Sound and Vision The Hague!

What do you see, do and experience in the media museum?

1st floor: politicians and journalists and media

You investigate the different roles of citizens, politicians and journalists. For example, you will experience that, under pressure from flashing cameras and questions from journalists, it is a challenge to stick to your story when you give a press conference. And if you have to turn this story into the frontpage of a newspaper, will you choose sensation or truth? How important is the freedom of the press for our journalism? And of course you calculate your BMI (Conscious with Media Index); how media savvy are you?

2nd floor: you turn the controls!

Not only journalists spread news: we are also fully involved! How do you use social media to draw attention to what is important to you? Do you choose to spread a fun meme or do you go to the Malieveld and start your own protest campaign? Find out what choices you have and where your limits of speech lie

3rd floor: The Hague

Of course we also look at what is happening in our own city of The Hague. How does The Hague get in the news (inter) nationally and locally? And how important is Haagse Humor to be able to give a contrary opinion? Which fellow citizens do you recognize who have a mission in the media?

4th floor: Temporary exhibition: cartoons by Tom Janssen

In his drawings, cartoonist Tom Janssen often plays with the relationships between citizens and governments, successful businessmen and simple employees, and between population groups. The nicest, most impressive and most famous of his cartoons can be seen here.

In short

At Sound and Vision The Hague you learn to find your way more consciously in the media landscape. We make you laugh, think and doubt.

Where you dive into the archive at Sound and Vision Hilversum, you don’t see an abundance of objects with us in The Hague. In our media museum you will learn by doing! You will discover what roles journalists, politicians and ourselves have, how you attract attention and how our reality is “colored” by people who do it best.

Our museum is suitable for everyone from 12 years old. There is a special family route for children between 8 and 12 years old!
