Free Entry on the Museumsinsel for our Family Activity Day

Museumsinsel Berlin

On Sunday 17 June 2018, the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin is inviting children, teenagers and families to discover the Museumsinsel Berlin for a day of family-friendly activities. From 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. families will receive free entry to the Altes Museum, Bode-Museum, Pergamonmuseum, Neues Museum and the Alte Nationalgalerie. This does not apply to the Alte Nationalgalerie’s special exhibition Wanderlust: From Caspar David Friedrich to Auguste Renoir.

This year’s Family Activity Day is organized around the theme of “movement”. From 12 to 4 p.m. there will be workshops outside and exhibition talks inside, dealing with artistic motifs related to movement. The activities span the entire Museumsinsel. The Kolonnadenhof forms the focal point of this diverse programme of family-based festivities, which is capped off with musical activities, snacks and beverages, as well as a game of museum bingo.

Participation is free. Children and teenagers under 19 years of age receive free entry to the participating museums and may take up to two adults with them.

The “Family Activity Day” is part of the Connections education and outreach programme. Through this project, during the summer of 2018, the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin is inviting audiences to discover the diversity of the Museumsinsel Berlin and its collections. The aim is to promote the participation of a diverse public in the activities and evolution of the Museumsinsel and its future neighbour, the Humboldt Forum.
