- Jewish Museum Berlin

Children's Program at the Jewish Museum Berlin in May and June 2007

The Jewish Museum's educational program has much to offer children in May and June too. On the "Halakah and Plaited Loaves" tour, children have much fun learning about Jewish traditions while "The Crazy Crooked House. Daniel Libeskind for Children" is all about the Museum architecture.


Children's Tours

Halakah and Plaited Loaves – Jewish Traditions
A Tour for Children from 5 to 11 Years
On this stroll through the exhibition, we look at Jewish traditions from kashrut (dietary laws) to the Shabbat and how they have changed in the course of the centuries. We have fun experiencing how it feels to wear a kippah, the traditional skullcap worn by religious Jews, admire a real scroll, and sniff a besamin box full of spices.
When: first Sunday of the month: 6 May and 3 June at 11 am
Duration: approx. 1 hr
Cost: 3 euros including admission
Please gather at the Meeting Point in the Museum lobby

The Crazy Crooked House. Daniel Libeskind for Children
A Tour for Children from 5 to 11 Years
Why are the walls here at a slant? Why are the windows slits? Why does the staircase lead to nowhere? Which direction do balls roll in the underground Axes? Why are there no flowers blossoming in the garden? Tailored to our age group, we young visitors receive a fun introduction to the architecture of Daniel Libeskind. Afterwards building blocks, cardboard, paper, and other handicraft materials are made available to us to design our very own crazy fantasy house.
When: third Sunday of the month: 20 May and 17 June at 11 am
Duration: approx. 2 hrs
Cost: 3 euros including admission
Please gather at the Meeting Point in the Museum lobby
