Modernization of Wuppertal’s museum-based education

While the parents visit an exhibition at the Von der Heydt Museum, young visitors discover the Von der Heydt Museum in an entirely different way thanks to the numerous offers of the museum-based education system. They discover what is hidden behind closed doors in the Von der Heydt Museum and how the alarm system works. Or they can be inspired by beautiful sounds while painting and be spiritually transported to other spheres.

The museum studio, which has now been renovated after 20 years of intensive use, invites you to take a breather during the Easter holidays and try out new things. Rooms with modern design shine in an entirely new light. The listed arched windows are now an experience element and offer plenty of daylight in addition to the new LED lighting. “We are looking forward to the grand reopening on April 21; and this summer, we invite you to the big studio party,” says museum educator, Julia Dürbeck enthusiastically about her new rooms.
