Children's birthday parties

Birthday party in the museum

Children at the demonstration of the carding machine

A fun birthday party for the children and at the same time stress-free enjoyment for the parents – that is possible! With the LVR-Industriemuseum options for children’s birthday parties. First there is a short tour through the museum factory under the motto “How woollen cloth is made” and then: Do it yourself! From the activity-oriented options offered the child with a birthday chooses one appropriate to the age of the guests and then they can make felt, weave, print and much more together.
