The National Museum of Education is located in the building ‘De Holland’ on the Burgemeester de Raadtsingel 97. Visitors are welcome into a completely new museum from the 11th of July 2015.
The entire collection in care of the museum consist of over 350.000 objects that are in some way related to education; from textbooks, wall-charts, ink jars, atlases, photo’s and educational films to diaries and schoolbags. From summer 2015 onwards a large part of this collection will be on display in the museum yet again.
The National Museum of Education organizes a variety of projects. One of these projects by the National Museum of Education is the website www.historywallcharts.eu.
This website shows wall-charts from various European countries, which were meant for history lessons. The wall-charts belong to the collections of Denmark’s Paedagogiske Bibliothek (National Library of Education, Denmark), of the Forschungsstelle: Schulwandbild (department of the University of Würzburg, Germany) and of the National Museum of Education in Dordrecht. Please visit www.historywallcharts.eu for more information.
