Pushchairs are permitted in the exhibition rooms (without bags and food) and small children must be carried at the front (but neither on the back nor on the shoulders). Alternatively, the museum's own buggies can be borrowed free of charge.
Art for children's ears
Wherever children discover a penguin in the exhibition, they hold their audio guide to their ear - and are encouraged with stories, riddles and instructions to take a closer look at the artwork or to artistically record the feelings it triggers in them with the drawing pens provided. Available free of charge at the Infodesk for all children aged 5 to 12 - and for those accompanying them.
Workshops and children's birthday parties
Would you like to enable children to experience art in an age-appropriate way or even get creative themselves? Visit one of the family workshops on selected themes from the collection and exhibitions or celebrate your child's next birthday party at the museum.
See what you want to see
On a virtual walk through the Kunsthaus, you can see what is on show and where, mark your personal favourites for your next visit and share them with anyone you want to inspire. No download required!
Take art home with you
You are welcome to touch, examine and purchase everything on display in the Kunsthaus shops: catalogues, books and posters to remind you of your visit at home, products that are as beautiful as they are practical, or gifts to make others happy.
