Vor einer weissen Mauer steht eine hölzerne, alte Garderobe. Sie ist mit Kinderrucksäcken in allen Farben behängt.


For children and families, there is also a playful educational programme available on site:

Händy (Museum Game)

The Händy is a museum game specially developed for the open art museum. It consists of different materials held together by a metal ring with associated questions and game ideas. The children can thus embark on an exciting and fun-filled journey of discovery through our museum.

Do you want to play along? You can borrow a Händy free of charge at the cash desk in our museum.

The Händy with all questions and tasks [PDF, German only]

Auf einem schwarzen Hintergrund liegt das Händy (Museums-Spiel). Es besteht aus farbigen Karten aus Plastik, Papier oder auch Karton, und wird in der linken oberen Ecke von einem Metallring zusam-mengehalten
