The Education, Outreach and Visitor Services at the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin coordinates the joint educational programme offered by day-care centres for children and museums. Many of the museums offer guided tours, workshops and other events that are specially tailored to the needs of pre-school children.

Museum admission is free for children. There is a fee for guided tours and other supervised activities.

All groups visiting the museums must inform us beforehand of their visit, even for those events that do not require reservations!

What do you see in a museum? How can you paint water? How can we tell what season it is in a picture? Why do we need money and what makes it so valuable? How are sculptures made? Children can discover fairytales in pictures or a stone castle in the desert, make their own paints, try on Oriental robes, paint like artists, experiment with light and shadow or get to know the most famous mother in the world.

Many of our permanent and temporary exhibitions are accompanied by guided tours, workshops and other events aimed at specific age groups. We can also develop topics according to your specific wishes and needs, for example, for special projects.

Admission to the museum is free of charge for people under the age of 18. There is a charge, however, for guided tours and other organized offers.

All group visits must be registered in advance even if you do not wish to book any of our extra offers.

Our training courses offer educators a professional platform where they can discuss museum topics and how they can be incorporated into educational programmes for children. Our further training courses enable educators to familiarize themselves with the exhibition concepts of the different museums: curators and museum educators introduce current exhibitions, present support materials that can be used in day-care centres and kindergartens, and provide information on current offers at the museums.

On request, the department Education, Outreach, Visitor Services sends out regular newsletters (in German) on current educational offers to schools, day-care centres for children and kindergartens or directly to teachers and childcare staff.
