Education and outreach

Which inventions came about in the Stone Age? What does the Berlin Gold Hat have to do with the sun cult? Who were the Merovingians? What treasures are part of Heinrich Schliemann’s collection from Troy? In discovering the answers to these questions, visitors to the museum can also delve into the origins of human history, trace the footprints of these early people into the Middle Ages, and gain insight into what life was like and how people thought at that time.

Audio guides, guided tours, and other activities provide background information on the museum’s collection. In fostering discovery of prehistoric times and early history, the museum increases awareness of the influence our very distant past has had on today’s culture. Private guided tours are also available. In booking your appointment, you can select a time as well as a topic that interests you. 

Children are also invited to journey through the early stages of human history: They can discover runes and Viking swords, hunt for archaeological artefacts from Berlin, and learn about Stone Age tools – from the hand axe to the fish hook.
