Education and Creativity
LEARNING

The art museum and children’s museum are places of cultural education where we keep in mind the many various target groups and their wide range of learning needs. In order to meet these, we provide accompanied museum visits, guided tours, literary tours and talks about art for all ages. 

Individual creative work in our workshops and studios is led by our artists and educators. All of our offers can be booked by agreement on an individual basis. As an extracurricular learning facility, we cooperate closely with schools and kindergartens. Through our holiday programmes for the children of working parents we help to meet the needs of combining work and family life.

Our programme of events is put together by a large team comprising art historians, experiential and art educators, drama teachers, art therapists and other qualified educators.

Bookings and registration: esm-buchungen@post.neu-ulm.de
We kindly ask you to request guided tours and accompanied exhibition visits at least two weeks in advance. They are only considered booked when you receive a confirmation of registration by e-mail.

ACCOMPANIED EXHIBITION VISITS in the children’s museum

Allow us to show you the most exciting parts of the exhibition. There are no guided tours in the children’s museum because it is a place where everyone can discover and explore for themselves. But our exhibition guides know where you can film, listen, take notes or gain hands-on experience. They are there to give you tips and information about your visit.

It is of course possible to visit the exhibition in the children’s museum on your own, but an accompanied visit is more exciting.


Combined exhibition visit and museum workshop

Groups that have signed up for an accompanied visit can book one of the creative play workshops that our educational team develops for every exhibition.

Museum im Rucksack 2017
For kindergartens, school classes and other educational insitutions

MUSEUM IN A RUCKSACK

We take the museum with us and go outside!
For schools and kindergartens, we have developed the “Museum in a Backpack”.

Museum in a backpack 1:
Are sculptures made of plastic? Edwin Scharff, a sculptor from Neu-Ulm and sculpture in public space
Where are the “Three Men in a Boat” on the town hall square in Neu-Ulm actually going? We recreate them on site and get to the bottom of artist Edwin Scharff’s thoughts. But there’s much more to discover in the city.

Museum in a backpack 2:
Neu-Ulm is more colourful than you think! It’s about colour, form and the desire for both.
In the city, there are bright orange benches, sky-blue houses and grass-green balconies. Everything sounds wildly different: the colourful facades, which are additionally painted or decorated, the roof shapes, stairs and design of the window fronts. How would you design them? What tone does yellow actually make and what does a deep blue sound like? We explore how colour and form influence our perception of the city.

Starting point: Edwin Scharff Museum at Petrusplatz.

Information: “Museum im Rucksack” takes place outdoors and will be held in any case. Please make sure you wear appropriate clothing and footwear. In exceptional cases (in particularly bad weather), the backpacks can also be unpacked in the museum.

Dates and booking:
By arrangement, at least 14 days in advance. If you are interested, you can obtain further information at: esm-buchungen@post.neu-ulm.de
