Organisation and mission

Museum Hoge Woerd manages the museum collection and presentations at Castellum Hoge Woerd. It also develops the associated programming and education, sometimes in collaboration with various partners. All of these activities are carried out by a core staff and a large pool of volunteers. Utrecht’s Municipal Heritage Department is in charge of overall museum coordination. Thanks to the large team of volunteers, admission to the permanent displays at Museum Hoge Woerd is free of charge. However, annual maintenance and presentation of the collection are costly. At present, the museum hopes to realise a number of specific improvements to and around the Roman ship in particular. Your voluntary donation of €3 will make a valuable contribution to the maintenance of this unique heritage and the displays. You can make your contribution to the museum at the information desk inside Castellum Hoge Woerd by debit card or in the collection box.

Museum Hoge Woerd is one of the four main tenants of Castellum Hoge Woerd. Together with the CastellumCafĂ©, Podium (theatre) and Steede (gardens), the museum shares the name and corporate identity of Hoge Woerd, expressing the partners’ joint ambition to operate as a single entity and their shared mission to attract and connect visitors through a cohesive offering of activities spanning culture, heritage, nature and sustainability, food and fun, and where all are welcome to engage and explore to their heart’s content.
