Peace Palace


The Carnegie Foundation believes it is important to bring the work on ‘Peace through Law’ to the attention of children and adolescents as well. In a special educational program, the history of the Peace Palace and the work of the institutions located at the palace will be presented interactively. In consultation with the supervisor, the programme is adapted as much as possible to the level of the group.

Educational groups are welcomed to the Visitors Centre by an employee of the Carnegie Foundation. If no court sessions or other special meetings take place, the group is also welcome in the entrance hall of the Peace Palace and in one of the courtrooms.

Due to the interactive nature, receptions only take place outside opening hours on fixed days and times, subject to availability.
