Tropenmuseum Junior is part of the Tropenmuseum. It is a museum especially targeted at 6- to 13-year-olds. Ever since its foundation in 1975, it has made interactive exhibitions for children. Over the years, Tropenmuseum Junior has developed its own museological working method, which serves many of our museum colleagues as an example. The exhibitions, offering immersive experiences, are aimed at making children curious and open to different cultures, helping them to grow up into tolerant, respectful world citizens.
