The educational offer

Amsterdam’s amazing hidden church where Catholics worshipped together in secret gives us pause for thought: what is (religious) freedom? How free were Catholics in the seventeenth century if they were unable to express their faith in public? How free is anyone who has to hide their identity? This question is just as relevant as it ever was, and more than ever in the diverse, fast changing society we live in today. That is our starting point for the educational programmes in which we challenge school pupils to think about their own identity. What does it mean to be able to be yourself, how do we view other pupils and the world around?

Our programmes are linked tothe national civics syllabus.

Junior school

Our programmes for junior school pupils focus on civics and relate to themes such as home, feasts and religion. How did people live in the seventeenth century and how do we live today? What kind of festivals do we celebrate? What are the differences and the similarities between the world’s major religions? In our programmes we concentrate on pupils’ own experiences and encourage their curiosity.

Academy

The museum aims to create a twenty-first century learning environment; a place in which young people can express themselves and are taken seriously, conducting research and learning skills they can use in today’s society. The learning environment is located in the museum’s entrance building. Here we bring past and present together: the atmosphere in the historic house is centuries old and the entrance building is all about the present day. Here exhibitions and presentations examine the city, the neighbourhood and society today.

In the learning environment, the museum works with students and teachers from schools, colleges and universities. Interesting projects are co-created with various courses and departments which are expressed in exhibitions open for museum visitors to view.
