The Weltkulturen Museum’s education programme offers visitors the chance to explore the subjects and themes in the current exhibition in greater depth, to research the objects, and to create their own connections with the collection, thus developing new ideas, questions or creative objects.
We want children, young people and adults to see the Weltkulturen Museum as somewhere that belongs to them – not simply visiting the museum, but making it their own.
The Weltkulturen Museum offers guided tours and workshops for all age groups in the current exhibition. Some are also held in English.
In numerous cooperation projects, participants become actors in the museum and discuss current social issues and topics.
The Weltkulturen Museum offers a range of special tours and workshops for schools and day care centres from pre-school to senior grades. For educators and teachers, from pre-school to secondary level, the Weltkulturen Museum offers introductions to current exhibitions and further training courses.
Children’s birthday parties can also be held in the Weltkulturen Museum. Working with the education department’s special hands-on collection, children can create masks and batiks or build their own pinhole camera.

The team of education works along these working principles.
