Children & Family

Children, parents and grandparents hear stories about exhibits and are invited to be active together. Depending on the subject of the museum tour, which playfully incorporates a lot of knowledge about the objects and room themes, participants paint, design, play, and improvise. Come and let us surprise you.

Our "Museum Gift Bag" offers 365 days a year full of family programme.

Children's riddle rally

Discovering the exhibition "Dust & Silk" with children

In the exhibition Dust & Silk. Steppe & Silk Roads, a children's riddle rally awaits the young visitors. Even 1000 years ago there were many trade routes between Asia and Europe. Camels, horses and people transported many things. Find out why people talk about the Silk Road today, what the sky horses are all about and what "bound clouds" are.   

An entertaining tour through the exhibition for the whole family, especially for children from 6 to 12 years.

The accompanying booklet is available for 2 euros at the ticket office!
