The Museum Barberini: An Informal Classroom

We offer age-appropriate tours and workshops for school classes and kindergarten groups that address various subjects.

Our 50-minute tours provide the opportunity to engage in a discussion about art in the exhibition galleries.

In addition to a tour, our two-hour workshops use hands-on activities to allow children, through their own actions, to understand the art processes and the background used to create the originals. The workshops are held in the studio or the exhibition galleries depending on the subject.

For school classes and kindergarten groups we provide the opportunity to schedule an educational program outside normal opening hours, Mondays to Fridays from 9–11 a.m.

We invite teachers to attend professional development sessions on the current exhibition.

Max Beckmann: The World as a Stage

Vaudeville and fun fair performers, acrobats, clowns, and actors were some of his most important themes. Together, we will explore the differences, and learn why and under which circumstances he depicted this world.
