Information for teachers and pre-school teachers

Visiting a museum with children and students? Why not!


The Neanderthal Museum offers great opportunities for a visit of your school class or nursery school group. In our Permanent Exhibition and our Stone Age Workshop, children can experience the museum as a place of fun and exciting extracurricular learning.

The museum also offers several outdoor attractions: the Discovery Site, the “Human Traces” Art Trail and the Ice Age Game Reserve. All three can be uses both as teaching resources and as recreational spaces. They are ideal starting points for interdisciplinary project work and school lessons involving subjects such as Biology, History, Chemistry or Art.

On the following pages we want to present to you our concept of museum education for all age groups. You can use our different modules to arrange your visit in the Neander Valley to suit your own needs.  

We will gladly advise you and provide information!
