Museon One Planet

The world population is growing, technology is advancing at lightning speed, we are all travelling more and most of us are almost permanently online. All this means that we are more and more one world. At the same time, we are increasingly aware of our influence on nature and climate, and of the great importance of our natural world. The United Nations is keen to use sustainable solutions to tackle the greatest global challenges. To do this, it has formulated 17 Sustainable Development Goals that it aims to achieve by 2030.

Let your senses be bewitched and your brain tricked in Illusions: magic or science?

What did dinosaurs eat - and how do we know? Visitors are thrust into the world of dinosaur dining habits in this roaring spectacle of an exhibition. From the infamous flesh-eating T.rex to the plant munching Edmontosaurus , different dinosaurs ate different foods and often had unique ways of catching their dinner.

Life-size animatronic dinosaur heads, including the terrifying T.rex, show how the teeth and jaws move together to tear, grind and chew food.

You come across Polish people everywhere in the Netherlands: not just in horticulture, glasshouse construction and the building industry, but also in universities, commerce and the art world. This exhibition is all about these people and their history. Poles have been coming to the Netherlands ever since the early twentieth century. First to work in the mines in Limburg. After World War II, many of the Poles who helped to liberate the Netherlands stayed on. During the Communist period, many Poles sought refuge here and these days the glasshouses in the Westland provide work for thousands.
