Workshops for Children and Families


Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf Museum

Family Sunday in Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf

On the first Sunday of every month the Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf Museum organises a family Sunday. Between 12 pm and 2 pm families can sing, play and do arts and crafts together. The objects inside the exhibition show what it was like to be a child in Berlin 100 years ago. Afterwards visitors can share stories from their childhood and talk about family traditions. The offer is free and suitable for children from the age of five and up who are accompanied by their parents or grandparents. Refugee families are most welcome to join. The Family Sunday is centred around practical tasks so knowledge of the German language is not important. Families who would like to participate can stop by the museum without prior booking.

Under the title „Hallo Deutschland – Entdeckertour durch die Geschichte“ (Hello Germany – Exploring German History) the German Historical Museum offers guided tours for children and their families. Participants explore the collection and through selected objects learn about things that are part of everyday life in Germany. For instance, children are invited to explore activities such as playing, bathing, eating and celebrating by looking at the so-called „Augsburger Monatsbilder“, a famous cycle of early Renaissance paintings. They are encouraged to link the scenes they see in the large-scale paintings to their own experiences and to share their thoughts with the group. Afterwards the children can get creative in the museum’s painting workshop.

The workshops are suitable for children aged 8 to 12 (accompanied by an adult if desired). For booking please call (030) 20 304 -750/751 or write an email to [email protected] Please look here for further information.

German Museum of Technology invites refugee families and their carers to visit the junior campus. The junior campus, its factory rooms and the exhibition “Mensch in Fahrt – unterwegs mit Auto & Co” (man on tour – in transit by car and co.) can be visited within a two-hour workshop. Together with educationists the group gets to know more about the specific wheelers in the exhibition. Within the subsequent visit to the factory rooms the participants build their own car silhouettes or vehicles with electric motors that are shown in the junior campus afterwards.

The workshop is suitable for families and supervised groups of children in the age of 5 to 12.
Registration: [email protected] or (030) 902 54 350, Mondays from 10–12 am and Wednesdays from 2–4 pm.  

Youth Museum

Workshop participants explore Hanadi’s room at Villa Global @ Jugend Museum

The exhibition Villa Global at Youth Museum assembles different people from all over the world – from baby to granny, from Jewish rapper to refugee girl from Afghanistan. At the family Sunday you can meet the people at the villa and get to know more about their history. Where do they feel at home? Which music do they like? Do they love to cook? How important is family for them? And how a room at Villa Global would look like, if you would have the chance to design it. If you join the workshop, you can design your own ideas and get prints from a historic drum-type printer. Kids from 6 to 14 years and their families are welcome every first Sunday of the month from 2 to 5 pm.
