With both classical and experimental formats, the Art & Education Department offers the public the opportunity to engage with art in a variety of ways: in individual and group tours, workshops or open studios. Joint research and design can be carried out in cross-generational offerings. Adapted to different age and interest groups and in several languages, visitors can experience exciting approaches to art of the past and present.

The children's and family workshops invite visitors to discover the museum as a place full of stories and questions and to experience new forms of creative expression. The family day consists of workshops, performative formats and a lively speed dating session on current topics. We also offer rooms and support for important personal events of our audience: For example, children aged 4-12 can celebrate their birthday in the museum's modern studios.

In the school workshops, we invite students to examine the collection and exhibitions in the context of pressing social issues. We offer three school workshops for each of the large special exhibitions. In the regular further training courses for teachers we teach methods and instruments for dealing with art from all eras.
