For Families & Children

Our museum mascot, Sammy, ensures that even very young children embark on an exciting tour through our exhibits customized for their age group. Sammy does more than just present amazing optical illusions: he is also happy to accompany guests on a tour of discovery through the exhibits during family afternoons at the museum. Afterwards, children are invited to solve a few riddles. Get ready to be surprised! On other days, a Laterna magica is used to present the beloved fairy tales of Wilhelm Hauff.


With our program, we would like to offer you an interesting educational experience suitable for the whole family. You will find our current programs here.
