Schools and the Museum

School classes have the opportunity to get to know the collections and the current exhibitions in our museums through special programmes adapted to the respective age groups. The visits to the exhibitions are targeted at all age groups and all types of schools. As a rule, each programme consists of a theoretical and a practical section; for the practical section, 0.50 Euro are charged to cover material costs.

Training for Teachers

In our training sessions, we regularly inform teachers about current exhibitions and programmes for school classes.
