Offerings for Families
The Futurium is open to everyone. For children and families, we offer private tours and invite you to join our open workshops called "Family Open Lab" which take place every weekend. You prefer to explore the exhibition and Futurium Lab on your own? No problem! You will find something to discover for all age groups throughout the entire house. Online too, of course.
1. Guided Tours
Into the worlds of the future! Our guided tours introduce you to the highlights of the exhibition with its three areas of Human, Nature and Technology.
Public Family Tour (in German)
Our public family guided tour in German takes place every Sunday from 14:30 – 15:30. It is recommended for children from 6 years. Click here to select and book the family tour (in German) from our public tours.
If you prefer an English-speaking tour, then our private group tours are the right choice for you. You can choose between different tours, depending on the size and composition of your group.
Private Group Tour for Friends and Families up to 10 People (in English)
If you would like to book a private tour for a small group of up to 10 people at your preferred time, this is the best format for you. We offer these one-hour tours at reduced and regular rates. When booking, please state the age and number of children participating.
Private Group Tours for Kids from 11 People (in English)
For a group from 11 people, you can book private guided tours for schoolchildren in year 1-6 or for schoolchildren in year 7 and up. These one-hour guided tours give you a playful introduction to the themes of our exhibition: How will and do we want to live in the future?
2. Children's Rallye
Discovering futures on your own? Pick up our children's rallye booklet "Off to the Future" (available in English and German) at the information counter in the foyer and dive into Futurium! All you need is a pen and a curiosity for new things. Have fun with it!
3. YouTube Series “Fast, Forward, Future”
“Fast, Forward, Future” (“Zick, Zack, Zukunft”) is Futurium’s YouTube series with and for children. Should children be given the right to vote? How might our cities become more climate-friendly? Will we soon be relaxing on Mars? Young reporters ask Futurium’s experts their own questions on future-related topics: from robots and space travel to environmental protection. Five episodes, five topics of the future. Have a look!
4. Family Open Lab
Every Saturday and Sunday from 12:00 – 17:00, we offer our Family Open Lab. You can explore questions about the future at Futurium Lab and playfully learn about the technical basics in robotics, 3D printing, programming or laser cutting.
What awaits you:
- Ideas for the future of democracy. Use augmented reality and stickers to develop your ideas for living together tomorrow.
- Logistics of the future. You will think about future logistics solutions with small learning robots.
- 3D printing. Try out new production techniques when you make objects by hand or with our machines in the workshop.
- Future masks. You will produce masks for your future identity with the laser cutter.
The workshop themes alternate, offer different levels of difficulty and are suitable for everyone from 10-99 years old.
Our workshop mentors speak English. They will be happy to assist you with the experiments and workshop. Just drop by the Futurium Lab on Saturdays and Sundays between 12:00 and 17:00. The workshops take place in a drop-in format, which means you can join in at any time. Free entrance.
For the moment, the detailed Family Open Lab programme is only published in German. We're working on an English translation, please stay tuned. Feel free to come by and join the workshops anyway, all international visitors are warmly welcome!
