Tropenmuseum Junior

Step into another world!

Tropenmuseum Junior is the children's museum of the Tropenmuseum. A dynamic design makes the exhibition area a completely different world. The children are immersed in it. The subjects come to life and children take an active part in the exhibition. Everyone’s curiosity is aroused. You learn by doing.

Learning by doing

The museum demonstrates this commitment by establishing extraordinary exhibitions, offering immersive experiences, that are designed to make children curious and open to different cultures. We show connections between people, cultures, the present, past and future. We do this by telling stories from multiple perspectives while using worldwide collection.

“It is not only about looking at or listening to. It is about being part of.”

The exhibitions of Tropenmuseum Junior exemplify how research, museum methodology and design production techniques can be integrated into an interactive experience. We believe that genuine understanding is achieved through active involvement. We have developed seven criteria for exhibitions and programmes aimed at encouraging open-mindedness and achieving a meaningful museum experience.

““The Tropenmuseum Junior is a real experience!
All the senses are activated!”
