Guided tours with Kindergartens

Even the youngest are very welcome! On a playful voyage of discovery the young visitors have the opportunity to get to know the Weserburg. Their first visit to the museum will allow for an imaginative and creative encounter with the works of art. This approach exercises the children’s ability to think and imagine and appeals to their own means of expression. Versatile methods convey works and exhibitions of the museum in a practical way. We address the daycare group in a child-friendly way and in a language that is easy to understand.

Children experience art and culture – this is the motto of the kek Kindermuseum (children’s museum). The association was founded in 2004 by art and museum educator Silke Rosenthal and art historian and museum educator Eva Vonrüti-Moeller. Together with the Weserburg Museum für moderne Kunst (long-standing cooperation partner since 2008), the kek Children’s Museum offers a unique out-of-school learning location for Bremen.
Participatory exhibitions

Every year a new or revised participatory exhibition is presented in the Weserburg from August/September to February/March. Here you can practice and deepen your technical, aesthetic and intellectual skills together. The focus is on one’s own perception and is the starting point for communicative processes. Trying out, changing and designing is expressly desired!

With their elaborately designed thematic areas, the exhibitions are aimed at all ages 4 and older. From Monday to Friday the rooms are reserved for school classes and kindergartens – timely registration is required! On weekends everyone is very welcome, even without registration.

The upcoming exhibition KlangTräume will open on 8 September 2019.
