Children and families are cordially invited to visit free of charge. They are welcome to try things out, browse and play. The museum is largely barrier-free. In addition to our regular events, individual guided tours and (art) workshops for children and families can be booked in the museum. We are happy to accommodate your wishes.

In the KunstGasse, our workshop right next to the Diocesan Museum, we get creative ourselves. Here children and adults can realise their own ideas under guidance, paint, do handicrafts and design.

An annually changing educational programme is planned with creative workshops and art activities around the Diözesanmuseum. We look forward to colourful splashes of paint and first works of art with you!
