The Humanitarian Adventure


A moving journey open to all! 

The permanent exhibition offers a unique opportunity to discover the world of humanitarian action and to understand its history and its challenges.

It addresses three major current challenges, each of which, in its own way, provides an answer to the question: how does humanitarian action concern us all, here and now?



Human dignity implies respect for the life and integrity of the person.

Long defended by texts from all cultures, its respect is a permanent challenge. This area of the permanent exhibition invites us to reflect on the humanity and principles that determine international humanitarian law.

We can all contribute to their respect through our daily actions.

The ties that bind us to others play an important role in defining us. When these links are broken, we lose part of our identity and our bearings.

Giving news, receiving news and finding our loved ones are part of our daily lives. They give us the balance we need.

The stability of these links becomes essential in a crisis situation.

Humanity has progressed despite the threats it faces.

Prevention of natural disasters, epidemics and pandemics can save lives. It concerns us all.

Communication, games and a wide range of educational approaches are important tools for adopting the right actions.
