Education and outreach

Old masters, art in books and on paper, drawings and prints, applied arts, fashion, design, or art of the 20th century: The Kulturforum comprises European art from the Middle Ages to the present.

Visitors can attend book presentations in the Kunstbibliothek, expert discussions in the Gemäldegalerie, or tours in the storerooms of the Kupferstichkabinett. Visitors can become acquainted with the collection of the Kunstgewerbemuseum by going on a guided tour or simply enjoy the architecture of the famous, light-filled building designed by Mies van der Rohe at the Neue Nationalgalerie

All the museums offer audio guides, guided tours, workshops, and other activities to enhance your exploration of the collections. All of them also offer private guided tours and workshops. In booking your appointment, you can select a time as well as a topic that interests you. 

On summer evenings, the Kulturforum is regularly transformed into one of the most beautiful open-air cinemas in Berlin, where up to 1000 visitors can relax in reclining chairs. In cooperation with the Yorck Cinema Group, the best movies from recent months are screened against the impressive backdrop of Potsdamer Platz at night.
