Under this motto, the Kunstmuseum Bonn invites children from daycare facilities to explore the museum, encounter works of art, and to try out both materials and artistic techniques. In our workshops and museum courses, the entire focus is on color, form, movement, feelings, and stories—in other words, on art.
Every child is capable of responding to pictures, engaging in self-expression, and developing creatively. The Kunstmuseum offers already to young children an inspiring space in which they can use all their senses to experiences themselves within the world. Surrounded by paintings and objects, they feel a desire to play and to create things themselves. A large supply of age-appropriate materials is available for our workshops. They have been carefully selected with an eye to pedagogical and aesthetic aspects. With an abundance of methods and an emphasis on play, these materials are used in the collection spaces in front of the works of art, in the studio spaces, and in the external area of the museum.
Fourteen building-blocks offer the tiny museum visitors a multiplicity of themes and possibilities for themselves being creative and discovering individual possibilities of expression. Even the very youngest can do this at our museum!
We would like to invite all children to have fun experiencing art!

“Every child a museum child”—we keep our eyes on this goal. In the framework of ViM—Preschool Children into the Museum!—we invite children from daycare facilities to participate in our ten-week museum courses, where they can have an age-appropriate experience of the museum, its architecture, its works of art, and various techniques for designing and painting on their own. With its treasures and surprises, the museum becomes a stimulating place for new experiences, a field of experimentation which involves all the senses and—in accordance with the educational agreement for the State of North Rhine-Westphalia—in which aesthetic instruction touches upon all areas of daily life.
“Worlds of Color,” “Take a Close Look!,” “My Favorite Work of Art” or “What is That Made Of?” You have a choice among twenty building blocks with numerous works of art and creative techniques, as well as a varied repertoire of methods.
Of course, we also offer a “brightly colored” program for individual workshops.
With generous support from the Ministry for Family, Children, Young Persons, Culture and Sports of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia.
In 2010, the Kunstmuseum Bonn—together with six further museums in Germany—joined the project “Museums and Kindergartens” sponsored by the Bundesverband Museumspädagogik E.V. The 73 method-crds developed for that purpose seek to inform, to inspire, and to make a contribution to the cultural development of young persons in museums.
