An entirely new world lies hidden behind the museum’s beautiful historical facade. A world in which you, the visitor, play the starring role. Listen as we tell you the real life stories of people from all over the world who have survived disasters, or were forced to flee their homeland. But we have far more to share with you… we give you a chance to walk in their shoes, and feel what it’s like to be a victim.

It is a special museum allowing you to experience how refugees travel a long way to the Netherlands and get registered. However, the experience is made to be too simple and unimpressive. When I went through Zone A which mimics the way from refugees' home country to Holland, I couldn't feel the danger they encounter or the torture they have.... More

This is not just a museum where you can look at things; you can actually make a journey to experience what it is like when you have to flee and become a refugee. It is interesting and a bit discomforting, and will definitely give you food for thought. I think it's suitable for many different kinds of people and ages... More

This museum is amazing! The concept is interactive, so you can learn on the life of refugee from your own experience here. You can look humanity problem from a different perspective and feel a little bit chilly to have yourself walk through bumpy journey fleeing from danger behind you. A great work and a must experience for everyone to awake... More

I often take my International freinds here, but the museum has little temporary exhibitions. The museum general tour on the experience as a refugee does it well,and it's definitely worth it when you are doing this for the first time. What certainly is worthwhile is to look at the website of the Humanity House before going since they also have... More

A stunning immersion into a refugee life. It's the most relevant museum I saw in years, it's well displayed, to the details, and gives an excellent insight of what refugees go through. The highlights for me were the mirror room and the interview. EVERY person should visit it, especially teenagers.

This amazing museum offers an immersion into what it is like to be a refugee, from the time of the need to leave your home to the relocation. Reading stories about amnesty seekers and actually experiencing the process are as different as apples and oranges. My hope is young and all will take time out from seeing the Dutch Masters... More

Humanity House is a museum, a cafe and a gallery. The design was very trendy, immediately walked in, you can feel the vibrant. Great Cafe in the first floor. Excellent location, near the Grote Markt in the the central.

Now that I thought it is really difficult to strike me with the museum concept, Humanity House is captivating. It definitely goes in to top three of my most fav "engaging" museums that I've been in, together with Junibacken and Anne Frank's house. The whole museum experience invites you to the journey not of someone else, but of you yourself... More

This is a museum with a difference. You are taken on a journey through the building, each room giving you the experience of being a refugee and having to leave your home and family. It was haunting, eerie, and on times scary. It is a very clever concept and has much more impact than just looking at exhibits. The facilities... More
