Family Program

On the first Sunday of every month we invite you and your family to Family Sunday. An exciting program with many hands-on activities awaits the children of the specified age, while the parents have "child-free" and can enjoy a guided tour through the exhibition. You only have to pay the entrance fee to the museum, whereby children under the age of 18 have free admission!

Our children's birthday programs are an experience of a very special kind. The birthday children explore the exhibition with their friends.


Family Program

Family Sunday: Digging in yesterday - Wachtel Special

Dates: October 1st, November 5th, 2023 and January 7th, 2024, 2 p.m. and 4 p.m

A hundred years ago the world looked black and white - at least when you look at old photos. We will show you that things used to be as colorful as they are today using exciting objects from the past two centuries. Come along and let's explore the early years of your parents, grandparents and great-grandparents together! We will introduce you to the highlights of the "Wachteln". The Wachteln are young people who are closely linked to the museum and help us to inspire you.

Age groups: children from 8 to 12 years

Duration: 1.5 hours
