About the
Children’s museum

“Hands-on” is expressly desired – actually! In our children’s museum young and old become researchers: You search, discover and build.

Constructing, research, experiment – this is currently possible in a modified version. Our educational team has thought about how we can make the exhibition accessible to you in the best way concerning the actual situation – and you can do almost as much as before. For example, you can get the materials for building already packed at the stations from the supervisors.

About our Children’s Museum:

The exhibitions in the children’s museum range from socially relevant subjects to cultural history and natural science. We have already dealt with topics such as the family, death, our bodies, globalisation and anything else that moves and motivates us.

These exhibitions, covering a great variety of fields of knowledge, change every year. They are designed to make learning really fun and turn it into something that happens in the course of play. Our experimental and hands-on exhibits turn visitors young and old into active players. In doing so, our museum is responding to our natural sense of playfulness, the urge to move and curiosity. And those are not confined to children: we also have many enthusiastic adult visitors.
