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.


• We photograph people – on the street – and let them experience how valuable they are;

• We enrich cities with outdoor exhibitions and local events;

• We encourage young people to believe in themselves and to really see the other with education programs of School of Humanity;

• We train companies and organizations to create more connections and understanding; 

• We organize activities and programs with our army of volunteers in our permanent museum in the Amsterdam area (Zaandam).
