Education & Participation

Guided Tours

From Wednesday to Sunday, we offer guided tours for individuals or groups (up to max. 5 persons) around the focal points and exhibitions of the ZKM. Participants have the opportunity to experience a communicative hour with our art educators in a relaxed atmosphere.

For us, adopting an open and creative attitude is crucial for the path to a mature digital society. Therefore, we want to try out analog ideas and digital strategies together – everyone is welcome!

Current Program

On Education and Participation at the ZKM

Museum communication is interdisciplinary, cross-media and participatory.

The ZKM | Museum Communication stands for innovative art, culture and media communication. Museum communication is art education and participation in process. With our formats, we create communicative situations between visitors, art and all participants in the exhibitions – whether in unusual workshops, interactive guided tours, experimental training courses or creative projects.
