About Sound and Vision

The Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision is the institute for media culture; an inspiring, creative and accessible meeting place for both private individuals and professionals.

We interpret current developments concerning people, media and society from a media-historical perspective.

We do this by using our collection, as a media museum, as a knowledge institute and as an educational partner. We show people how media have evolved in (recent) history, follow current developments and respond to new media phenomena. In this way, we make a relevant contribution to an open media culture as part of a free society.


The Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision is a foundation, established on May 30, 2005 and registered in the municipality of Hilversum. The foundation exercises a task regulated by the Media Act and is paid through revenues from levies set by law.
