Museum The Hague

The media museum Sound and Vision The Hague is in transition. We are working hard on the concept and design of the new permanent exhibition. We want to let visitors experience the mechanisms and phenomena in the media in relation to peace, justice, power and democracies. If you are interested, make sure to regularly check the website for updates or register for the newsletter.

A safe visit
When visiting Sound and Vision The Hague, your health and safety and at that of our employees come first. See which measures we have taken.


Next to our permanent exhibition, we regularly offer temporary exhibitions in our beautiful building in The Hague. For an overview of the exhibitions, please see below.


Sound and Vision The Hague has compiled the knowledge, digital archives and collections of the former Press Museum (Persmuseum), the former Museum for Communication and the current Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision. These collections represent the press, journalism, media, communication and technology. Together, they form the basis of Sound and Vision The Hague.


Nowadays, being media-savvy is almost as important as being able to read and write. That’s why Sound and Vision – an expert on all media-related matters – regularly organises fun workshops for both primary and secondary schools. 

Both for primary and secondary schools


Investigative journalism faces many great challenges. From 16 September, we will offer a series of courses – Data as Opportunity. These courses consist of five modules. Experts from Sound and Vision, and investigative journalists from Bellingcat and LocalFocus will provide these courses.
