Humanity House

The recently renewed “experience journey“ at Humanity House is a one-of-a-kind exhibition. The visitor steps into the shoes of a refugee, and follows the path of their flight to safety, in an intense and immersive experience. After their journey the visitor comes face-to-face with eight real refugees, and can explore their moving stories – each one unique and individual. They access these stories through an interactive interview, where they can click to ask different questions.

The logistics of the exhibition are designed to reflect bureaucratic procedures relating to refugees. Visitors arriving to the museum are ‘processed’, and only when their name appears on a call system screen are they allowed to enter the exhibition. At the first stop a personal identity card is printed for them. From here on they move through the different exhibits, diving deeper into the sombering realities of a refugee’s journey.
