Children’s Programmes

The Arithmeum is a modern museum in which science and art intermingle in aesthetic surroundings. Not only science but also art can be fascinating for children. Thus the Arithmeum has developed suitable programs for children who are interested in such topics or whose dormant interest needs awakening.

On the first Saturday every month we offer a public children's programme in German language. Information about the upcoming programmes can be found in our event schedule, prior registration by telephone is mandatory: 0228 - 738790.
