Museon, The Hague

The Museon de The Hague was born like a scholastic museum, devised by Frits Paaschen, director of the newspaper Of Is Avondpost. Its intention was to found an institution on which the educational ones could introduce to their students in the wonders of natural sciences of dynamic and funny way.

Thus, in 1904 the collection abrió its doors, and since then it has not stopped growing. At present it counts on 18 permanent rooms of exhibition and numerous temporary samples, besides activities for smallest.

To cross all the collections in these lines would be impossible, so that we are going to name them and soon to know some most spectacular: Justice and peace; Earth high/low earth; Volcanos and earthquakes; The Netherlands, land of the water; The tropical forest; Water and fire; Romans after dunes; Old Egypt; The Prehistory of the Netherlands; The day to day during the occupation; Children in the war; In house in another planet; Indonesia.

All these samples have their particular enchantment, and wake up the great and small admiration and the astonishment of. One of most impressive is, without doubts, Children in the war, even though is the thematic one from a perspective adapted for the students about the first years schooling. Histories, objects and photographies document, next to audio-visual material, the way in which the war affects the life of its defenseless victims.

With a very different registry, Indonesia sets out typical elements of the Hindu culture, old bronze sculptures, masks and the existing relation between the life in this distant region and Dutch historical happening.

The Netherlands, land of the water, shows the importance of the tide in the economic and cultural development of the zone, something very present in the architecture, the engineering and the daily life of Holland. Its fight against the floods and their advantage of the fertility that these provide to the territory is the axis of this room.
