Education

The art education department invites you to actively experience the exhibitions in the Kaiser Wilhelm Museum and in Haus Lange and Haus Esters: sensually, creatively, critically and dedicatedly.

The offerings available from the art education department are especially targeted to all visitors: families, children, adolescents, adults and people with disabilities. You are welcome to observe art, to consider and talk about art and even to work artistically yourself.

Visit the rooms of the art education department on the ground floor of the Kaiser Wilhelm Museum, take active part in weekend workshops, at guided tours for families, at KunstImPuls events or at our various holiday offerings.
