> How did the museum started ?
It all started with the Scouting Museum Haagse Randstad that was founded in 1987 to preserve a piece of the Scouting heritage and to show what has been done and what is still being done in the field of Scouting.
Since its establishment, the museum has had an extensive collection of historical, but also contemporary Scouting objects and photos in management. It shows how the association has evolved from a set of "Boy Scouts" to the todays Scouts.
The management is complete done by volunteers, Registering / repairing gifts, guided tours during exhibitions etc.
> What do you see during a visit to the museum?
When you visit the Scouting Museum you go on a treasure hunt through the time of more than 100 years of Scouting at home and abroad. Founded by Lord Baden Powell in 1907 and become the largest youth and youth movement around the world.
> Looking for your grandfather or grandmother at a camp?
