Public guided tours

Public guided tours of the Arithmeum exhibition are held every Sunday at 11 o’clock. On Sundays at 15 o‘clock there is a public tour of the current art exhibition. On every first Friday of the month at 18 o’clock, we offer a guided tour at our new viewing depot "Early Computers and PC's".

The standard tour presents deeper insights into the Arithmeum collection and shows many calculating machines in action. If you are unfamiliar with the subject of the exhibition, you can get to know the essential milestones of the history of mechanical calculating in such a guided tour. It will make you appreciate not only the aesthetic aspects, but also the function and the genius of the inventors of many machines.

Our guided art tours give you background information about the artists and are meant to serve as guidance, so that visitors can gain understanding of the works of art.

A walk through the viewing depot „Early Computers and PC’s“ shows the path from the first computers all the way to the present-day PC, from mechanics to microelectronics.

You do not need to register for the public guided tours on Sundays. However, if you want to visit the Arithmeum in a group of 7 or more people, prior registration is mandatory under 0228 - 738790. The same goes for the public tours of the viewing depot.

You will find information about public guided tours which do not take place regularly in the event schedule.
