„How Do Kosher Gummi Bears Taste?“ licking, diving, touching, experiencing - when children go to the museum, then they should and want to experience as much as possible sensually, otherwise they get bored quickly.
That's why today I have to share with you something that I experienced in Frankfurt last week and that I thought no child should miss! Especially because the Easter holidays are just around the corner. For discovering underground, thick walls, puzzling your own city or playing stories with wooden turntables - this is only possible in the Jewish Museum. There, where the ruins of the exciting Judengasse with its fascinating people and stories still stand upright under a glass floor, children experience how it lived in the 300 year old houses.
An occasion enough for me to test our most beautiful museums for their children's program.
· MUSEUM JUDENGASSE: In the children's workshops, questions about Judaism are answered playfully and in a variety of ways, Jewish life and Jewish culture are experienced with all the senses. But during the course of the year the participants can not only bake a mazze, write a scroll in Hebrew or build a hut. A look at other religions and cultures is also an important part of the programme. The workshop „Mahlzeit!“ for example is dedicated to the different dietary rules in Judaism, Christianity and Islam, another one takes off under the title „Hut!“ according to the different meanings of headgear in the most diverse contexts.
· Child-friendly program can also be found in one of the city's most popular houses: the Städel. On April 16, the house invites families and their children to a “search - hidden in the picture“. Many pictures in the Städel Museum are full of fascinating details that can only be seen on closer inspection. Together, families and their children embark on an exciting discovery tour of the museum's collection in this guided tour. In the Städel Museum, admission is free for children under the age of 12.
· DAM: Children in the Deutsches Architekturmuseum have a tidy lunch during the summer holidays on the Lego construction site. For a contribution towards expenses of around three euros, architects of the future can give free rein to their imagination. The DAM organizes theme competitions and regularly awards prizes to the best ideas.
· Projects, parties, workshops: the kinder museum frankfurt wants to impart knowledge to touch with its exhibitions especially designed for young people and make experiments possible. Children up to the 18th birthday receive free admission.
