Combined excursion: Prison Gate Museum - Humanity House
Combined excursion: Prison Gate Museum

A Day trip to The Hague

Are you planning a day trip with your class to The Hague, the city of Peace and Justice? Then why not book a combined excursion to the Prison Gate Museum and Humanity House. Two institutions within walking distance of each other.

What will your students do?

Take your class on a visit to two remarkable museums in The Hague, both devoted to stories and personal experience. At the Humanity House, students step into the shoes of a refugee and experience what it feels like to have to flee from a disaster or conflict. At the Prison Gate Museum they follow in the long-vanished footsteps of prisoners. Students become familiar with themes such as democracy, peace & safety and (international) law in an engaging way.


You can also enrich this combined excursion with one of our learning programmes. For instance, play the Humanity Game and see how your students tackle tough dilemmas as relief workers. Or if you are unable to travel to The Hague, use our Focus on Refugees programme.
