Options for children and adolescents in kindergarten, school and leisure groups

Looking into shelves with lots of old cash registers

Whether in leisure time, with the school or kindergarten: the varied options and programmes in and around the Peter-Behrens-Bau (Repository and Exhibition Building) offer children and adolescents opportunities to further develop their social and technical competence. More vividly than any book the historic building which houses so many treasures invites one to explore the history in more depth. Children and adolescents become immersed in this fascinating world during guided tours, activity-oriented events or project weeks.
