Museum education


We offer age-appropriate guided tours and educational activities for school classes, children and youth groups. In addition to the various specified promotions, combinations of different offers and, by individual agreement, special events are also conceivable. Whether preschool children in a day-care center who get to know one aspect of the Romans in the LIMESEUM once a month, a day in the LIMESEUM with museum education and Roman park or other special events - a lot is possible. We will regularly expand the offers in the future and are also planning special campaigns for adults.
