Education and outreach
The Alte Nationalgalerie welcomes you to the 19th century! Your visit to the museum will take you on a journey through many different periods in art: from Romanticism to Impressionism, from the French Revolution to the First World War. Masterpieces by a wide array of artists including Caspar David Friedrich, Claude Monet, and Adolf Menzel reflect the spirit of this eventful century.
The museum provides a range of ways to meet its visitors’ diverse interests. Whether you are interested in a specific art movement, cultural historical backgrounds, the building’s architecture, or the history of the collection itself, the museum offers numerous in-house events, audio guides to accompany your explorations, and can also arrange a private programme according to your wishes.
Children are also welcome to the museum: They can meet emperors, princes, and knights, dress up like Schadow’s princesses, or even grab a pencil and start their own sketch book.
The SMB’s spectrum of programming also addresses special needs that visitors might have, including a language workshop for school groups from immigrant backgrounds as well as programmes and services for blind, partially sighted, or mobility-impaired visitors.
