The House of European History is a museum for everyone, be they from Brussels or Budapest, Ghent or Gdańsk. Reaching out to people and communities both near and far is a vital aspect of the museum’s activities. We do this through specific projects and online link-ups with events and partner institutions across Europe and focused outreach work with diverse groups in our immediate neighbourhood and region.

Why should museums talk about rubbish? A topic that is by definition marginalised as it concerns what we dispose of and do not want to look at anymore, waste has become a central issue of our time. As places for learning, reflection and debate, connecting objects and stories across time, museums are uniquely positioned to expose the topic.
