Museum and School

Offers for School Classes and Kindergarten Groups

The Museum provides school classes and kindergarten groups with an inspiring environment for learning and education. The encounter with extraordinary authentic works of art creates unforgettable experiences for children and opens up new worlds.

Children of all ages react open-mindedly and interested when they are confronted with works of art. During a visit in the Museum für Gegenwartskunst Siegen they are encouraged to discover the exhibitons within their guided group and on their own.

We offer several programs in combination with our exhibitions and the Collection. Each program guides you through the exhibitions and takes special account of the childrens' age. As a teacher you can, of course, also conduct your own guided tour.

Please announce your visit in any case to avoid scheduling conflicts.
