Through the authenticity the objects in our museum have, it is a fascinating out-of-school learning experience. In nearly all of the event offers, there is a syllabus reference described. Our events can be an interesting addition to the lessons in school. We suggest to prepare and to evaluate the visit to the museum in class.
During school vacations, educational events can also be booked for individual children. More information on this can be found in our vacation programmes in the education section.
