ART FOR EVERYBODYMuseumspädagogik

Education Programme

After years of improvising the Middle-Rhine Museum now has new rooms. For the first time this includes a bright, spacious room for the museum’s educational programme, which fulfills all of today’s demands.

In future, this is where the creative heart of the museum lies. For a museum should not be a passive institution that mainly lives off its own resources. It is far more imperatively dependent on impulses and energies from outside. Only then can it be a lively place, which offers its visitors an attractive programme.


It is our future task to develop additional concepts in order to attract new groups of visitors and to create more interaction as well as possibilities for participation.



Celebrating birthday at the Middle-Rhine Museum

“Today it can rain, storm or snow…” (German birthday song)

…because we celebrate your birthday at the Middle-Rhine Museum! Together we have a look at pictures and afterwards you can do handicrafts, glue, draw and mold things as much as you like to. At the end, every child has a small artwork, which it can take home as a reminder.

Duration: 2 hours

Price: € 50.00 incl. admission fee; depending on topic, additional material costs are possible

Experiencing pictures with all senses
