The varied and wide-ranging educational program offered by the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westafalen is informative, entertaining, and convivial. Through a variety of formats, the reception of works of art becomes a lively process, and the discovery and interpretation of art becomes an enriching individual experience.

Our public guided tours provide detailed information about current exhibitions, as well as about the permanent collection. Participation is included in the admission fee. Scheduled for selected times are guided tours in Japanese, as well as in sign language.

Learn more about artists and their works! In our workshops, you will become immersed in the world of these artists: through stimulating dialogue, you will get to know their friends, companions, and critics, and discuss contemporary writings and literature. The praxis-oriented workshops become a very special experience. Stimulated by intensive examinations of original works, you are invited to attempt your own artistic forays, testing and experimenting with new visual idioms and materials.

Would you like to experience exhibitions in small groups with the benefit of expert knowledge? Delight a friend with a gift of a special guided tour? Organize a very special company event? We are prepared to advise you, and to accommodate individual wishes.

Guided tours through the permanent collection and special exhibitions are available in German, English, French, Japanese, Hungarian, and Dutch. Please note that the number of participants for each guided tour cannot exceed 20 individuals.

The new accompanying program for everyone under 30
