2024 Summer Programme at the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin


During the summer holidays, the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin offers a varied programme for families, teens, and adults. Alongside extended opening hours at the Neues Museum, the James-Simon-Galerie and the Alte Nationalgalerie, an extensive list of workshops takes place during the summertime across the entire Museumsinsel and at Haus Bastian – Centre for Cultural Education. Additional offers can be found at the Kulturforum, Hamburger Bahnhof – Nationalgalerie der Gegenwart, the Museum für Fotografie (Museum of Photography) and the Museum Europäischer Kulturen (MEK, Museum of European Cultures).
