School Classes

A group of pupils sitting on the floor and tinkering.

The Museum communication designs a varied program for school classes, which is adapted to the curricula and individually to the class level, age and type of school.

The offer ranges from guided tours and action guided tours through current exhibitions to workshops dealing with individual exhibition content and working with a wide variety of artistic media.

We have expanded our school class program to include online offers, which can be booked for a small group or a whole class together with its teacher.

If you are in possession of a school year pass, you do not have to pay admission.

Annual Ticket for Schools – 190 €

From the date of purchase, all classes and teachers of a school can visit the exhibitions of the ZKM as often as they wish for one year. The annual ticket is also valid for teachers who would like to prepare their lessons at the ZKM alone or in (teacher) groups. A school year ticket pays for itself if four classes from one school visit the ZKM in one year. Please note: The annual ticket must be presented in the original and is only valid for pupils and teachers.

Individual focuses can be set by arrangement. School groups are instructed according to class level and school type.
