Children & Families

Birthdays at the Museum

The museum is the perfect place for a celebration for people who are curious and creative! Up to ten children can go on a special adventure at the museum: As a group of gold seekers, for example, they go on a quest to find a mysterious jade seal or they can spend the afternoon making an animated short film. At our special birthday events, each guest will take home something that he has made himself.

We accompany children with their parents or grandparents on their journey through 3,000 years of art and cultural history. The museum can be discovered individually or through our extensive family program and special children's events.

Kids at GRASSI

Every Sunday is family time at the Grassimuseum: we want to give families a space to express their creative side during special themed events. KIDS AT GRASSI is a family program from the three museums at GRASSI and is carried out alternately by our museum, the GRASSI Museum of Ethnology and the Musical Instruments Museum.


Holiday in action

During the winter and summer holidays, we offer a special holiday program called "FERIEN AKTIV!" ("Holidays in action!"). After the tour of the exhibition, we play quizzes, games and host special workshops at the museum.


Audio Guide for Children

A special audio tour is available for 8 to 12-year-olds. The audio guide is available at the ticket office for 1.00 €.
