Accessibility per museum floor

Sound and Vision The Hague is a media museum that focuses on the press, journalism and our own media use. The museum contains many videos, sound clips and interactive elements. Videos in the museum are subtitled in English. We therefore recommend that visitors with a visual or hearing impairment come with a supervisor.

The permanent exhibition consists of three floors and the library and the temporary exhibition are on the fourth floor.

1st floor | The game of power and media

On this floor there are five different parts of the exhibition, each with its own theme. Together they tell the story of how journalism works and what factors influence it. Many parts can be viewed, listened to or done independently. You need a supervisor to put together a newspaper cover yourself and to play the fake news game.

2nd floor | The strongest player

As a visitor on this floor you walk to the left along the various themes. Here you will come across topics such as ‘online debate’, ‘satire’ ‘protest’ and ‘citizen journalism’. The video and game in Satire are difficult to watch from a wheelchair. The cartoons on the wall are good to watch.

3rd floor | The Hague

The Hague floor consists of a number of showcases, audio fragments and videos that revolve around the Hague identity; from politics, to Hague Humor and stories of residents of The Hague. This floor has little daylight, which makes it better for the visually impaired to bring a companion with you.

4e etage | Temporary exhibition

The Hague floor consists of a number of showcases, audio fragments and videos that revolve around the Hague identity; from politics, to Hague Humor and stories of residents of The Hague. This floor has little daylight, which makes it pleasant for the visually impaired to bring a companion with you.
