School Children & Teachers

Cultural education at the Museum. Inspiring hearts and minds, and leading us to reflect on our own behavior

We use a range of methods to help young people explore, understand and discuss different ways of living in the past, present and future. We address how we live together from different angles such as diversity, tolerance, freedom, justice, social inequality, we explore the opportunities and threats of the digital age, sustainability and the environment, and raise questions concerning both artistic and other forms of aesthetic study and creativity.

Bring your students along to discover the Münchner Stadtmuseum – it is an ideal place for social learning, a place which will always inspire them with new ideas about how to live their own lives.

Teachers can easily incorporate what we offer into their everyday school activities. Museums offer excellent “cultural education”, an interdisciplinary aim that features in all Bavarian school curricula. All our activities can also be linked to specific school subjects.

Please come to us, or our long-standing partners at the MPZ (Center for Museum Education), to learn more about our activities and how we can tailor them to your needs. Please book as early as possible and no later than 10 days before you intend to visit the Museum.
