Are you traveling to or visiting The Hague, The Netherlands, between June 12th and June 21st? Are you living in or near The Hague and would you like to help us with one of our visitor studies?

We are looking for English speaking adult museum visitors willing to participate in our visitor research study. You can visit theAtlantik Wall exhibition in Museon and participate in the study alone or with a companion. After visiting the exhibition at your own pace (accompanied or unaccompanied by one of our researchers) you will be asked to answer to a questionnaire and then to an interview. This part of the study will last approximately 45 minutes.

Help us improve!

Your participation will enable us to understand what worked well in the exhibition and what could be improved and will provide invaluable insights for Museon and meSch project partners and researchers. Free entrance to the exhibition will be provided while refreshments will be available during the interview. Our researchers would be also interested in a follow-up interview with you some weeks after your museum visit but only if you agree to do so. We have foreseen a certain number of Museon inspired “thank you” gifts to thank you for your time and assistance.
