Who we are!





Museum of Humanity was created in 2001 after a dream of photographer Ruben Timman about a dilapidated and dark museum. It is a metaphor for the state of the world and our humanity. That dream is the starting point for portraying humanity worldwide as dignified as possible.

Our collection now consists of more than 8000 portraits. We visited twenty countries on five continents and grew into a worldwide movement. Because:

“We believe in the beauty and value of every person, regardless of origin, gender, orientation, conviction, age, disability or orientation. Every person matters, is valuable and capable of making the world a better place.”

We make humanity shine with portraits and stories. As an invitation to step across borders and get an eye for each other. Because in the other you always recognize something of yourself!
