Children & Family

In close cooperation with the Museum Educational Centre Munich (→ MPZ) and Munich's Adult Education Centre (→ MVHS) the staff of the museums on Königsplatz have developed an extensive programme for children over the past years. Possible activities range from guided tours with subsequent creative activities to arranging children's birthday parties right through to workshops lasting several days in which the participants can immerse themselves in ancient culture through play.

Many of the children's activities are offered on a fixed regular basis, others can be booked on request.

Guided Tours

Guided tours with a wide variety of themes can be booked at → Museum or also at → MPZ.

Children's Days

Twice a year (March/November) we organise children's days in the State Collections of Antiques. In short guided tours followed by a quiz the participants learn all sorts of interesting things about the Ancient World. With exciting games, join-in activities and creative workshops they gain deeper insight into the lives of the ancient Greeks and Romans. They can cast a deity in plaster, lay mosaics, make theatre masks or weave a garland of ivy for the god of festivity, Dionysus. Also, if the weather is fine, we generally hold an ancient sports day on Königsplatz.

To find out when the next Children's Day will be, please consult the → Calendar of events.

Children's Birthday Parties

You can celebrate your child's birthday in the State Collections of Antiquities. The general conditions and the programmes we offer can be found → here.

Children's Holiday Programme

Periodic programmes are being organized as one-week → workshops during the summer holidays or as one-day workshops, sometimes with the cooperation of other institutions through the → MPZ.

Mediaguide for Children

Eine besondere Attraktion für Kinder bietet seit einigen Jahren der für die Glyptothek neu entwickelte Mediaguide: Glauki, die Museumseule, begleitet die Kinder und Jugendlichen witzig, wissbegierig und bisweilen auch tollpatschig durch die Glyptothek. Ihr zur Seite steht die allwissende Göttin Athena.
