In our workshops for various age groups, young museum visitors develop a relationship with ancient cultures. They learn, for example, how craftsmen made objects in the ancient world. And they try out various techniques for themselves: making clay models or plaster casts. Or we discuss a particular theme - life after death for example. We try to find out what people in the ancient world thought and talk about our own ideas.

The workshops are not only for school classes. Why not bring your family or club along, immerse yourselfes in a topic from antiquity and get creative? We would be happy to organise one of our workshops for you.
