Getting young visitors excited about art and culture: the wide-ranging educational program of the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen not only contains a broad range of offerings that encourage children to get involved with art, but also a variety of activities designed to foster their overall development, including creative and verbal abilities as well as their social competences.

Art is global! Everywhere in the world, artists develop new ideas, creating astonishing and fantastic works of art. Their families, friends, and colleagues – often coming from a variety of different countries – also play important roles.

In the program “Minimix,” we go in search of clues – which may even take us around the world. In the process, we encounter singular, enthralling visual worlds that inspire our own creative experimentation. Let’s go! Whether you’re from Düsseldorf or are new in town – all children and their adult companions are welcome.

Free entry.

Please register with our visitor service:

In cooperation with the Diakonie Düsseldorf, Sachgebiet Integration, Migration und Flucht (working area: integration, migration, and flight)

Our exhibitions and the collection are always dedicated to new exciting topics, which we take a closer look at in workshops and holiday activities. Depending on the exhibition, there are also interfaces with pop culture, music, theatre, dance or socio-political themes.

Our current offers are found in the calendar and in our newsletter.

On various special exhibitons we offer “exhibition journals” made for children in the age of six and older. They can record their impressions and experiences in the museum on the basis of informative, age-appropriate texts and questions about the exhibited art works. Naturally the “exhibition journals” are meant to be taken home as a memory of an inspiring museum visit.

“Bilderjäger” will take place again starting with the new school year 2022/2023, with prior registration.

Do you want to get involved with art in a particularly intensive way? Then join our art club and become a “Bilderjäger”. As a member, you can even look behind the scenes of the museum. Twice a month the Bilderjäger explore the current presentations and get creative themselves on changing topics. The exact dates and themes are sent to club members on a quarterly basis.

More information and registration:

Every 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month, 3 – 6 p.m.

The K21 is the place for contemporary art. The artists’ works show how they experience the world and how they test new ideas and techniques. They often use media such as photography, film or computer games. Inspired by art, everyone from the age of 10 can experiment with digital image media and realise their own projects in the open media workshop.

Free entry.
