Activities for children and families

We offer a variety of programmes for people of all ages, including discovering the world of art through hands-on artistic activities. Whether you are looking for a children's birthday party, family afternoon, holiday scheme or an art club for children or teenagers, you’ll find something to suit you here.

 

Our varied holiday workshops give all children the chance to embark on a creative journey through the adventurous world of art. We constantly come up with new holiday workshops to accompany the special exhibitions or the permanent exhibition.

As part of a cooperative project with the AWO’s after-school daycare centre serving the Albrecht Dürer primary school in Halle an der Saale, children come together once a fortnight for art games at Moritzburg Art Museum, Halle an der Saale. In addition to creative activities, a children’s tour is developed together. On special occasions, such as International Children's Day, the game-players get not only interested children but also their parents interested in art, and present their own view of the works.

This leisure activity encourages children to develop creative skills while focusing on having fun drawing, painting and doing experiments. Guided by professional artists, the children get creative together, gradually developing a feel for shapes, colours and different materials and learning about various artistic techniques.

Chatty cats and shooting shapes

Our children’s audio guide gets pictures talking and takes you on flights of imagination.

The real diva of the “museum animals” is undoubtedly Franz Marc’s White Cat from 1912. She has already seen many an age come and go, and as the grande dame of the feline world, she is given the role of welcoming children to the audio guide. As she really is as old as the hills, however, she has given her great-grandcat the task of taking the children on an adventurous tour to explore the secrets of the permanent exhibition.

Youthful, fresh and funny dialogues bring the characters in 11 selected works of art to life. The Yellow Cow jangles her bell to get attention, a round, red shape can be seen and heard bouncing across the screen, or an argument breaks out in front of the portrait of Ernst Wilhelm Nay on his horse as to whether the two abstractly painted riders are knights or Native American Indians. This question is not answered, as the audio guide is not meant to tell children what to think, but to get them interested in looking at pictures.

Many of the stops on the audio tour, such as Walter Dechsel’s constructivist reverse glass painting, are complemented by music, with an assortment of technical noises morphing into cool techno music.
 

Where else would you come across something like that?

The children’s audio guide is available free of charge at the museum ticket office. All we ask for is a 5-euro deposit for our high-quality devices.

The project

This unusual project is a production by students on the Master's programme at the Merseburg University of Applied Sciences in cooperation with Moritzburg Art Museum, Halle an der Saale, produced by glaveTon. This audio tour, designed to offer visitors a real experience, rounds off the museum’s educational activities for families who would like to explore the art in the permanent exhibition individually.

Sore feet? Fed up of trailing through the huge rooms in the museum with mum and dad?

There’s no need for children to get bored here in the museum!

In our cosy children’s art area – the KinderKunstKabinett – on the first floor of the west wing, right in the middle of the path round the general exhibition, there is a playhouse for just this purpose with cushions to relax on, a slide, a big chalk board to drawn on and a block puzzle with pictures from the exhibition – which the children can then hunt out in the permanent exhibition, if they like.
