The Hands-on Museum
Welcome! The Hands-on Museum
Germany is currently a country of refuge and is set to remain so in the future. This means it has a great cultural task to perform. The German National Library is inviting one and all to its "Hands-on Museum" as a sign of welcome. Every Wednesday at 14:00 the German Museum of Books and Writing of the German National Library offers hands-on activities relating to books, paper and printing for (refugee) children and their parents.
Age: The topics are aimed at different age groups.
