The Hands-on Museum
The German Museum of Books and Writing stages numerous educational events at which visitors actively and creatively get to explore the history of writing, books, paper and media. General and theme-based guided tours of the permanent "Zeichen – Bücher – Netze: Von der Keilschrift zum Binärcode" exhibition and of the latest temporary exhibitions provide surprising insights into media history. The topics of the events are aimed both at schools and at private visitors – including families. As a non-school learning place, the "hands-on museum" provides many intersections with the school subjects of German, history, art, handicrafts, general studies and religion for children of all ages – from pre-school infants through to upper secondary school students. The events vary between 90 and 120 minutes in length, depending on the activity. Free admission. There are no charges for materials.
