Are you thinking of bringing your children or a kindergarten group to the Jewish Museum? We offer lots of exciting activities for families and groups.
In cooperation with wienXtra we also offer regular programs during the “family days” and during the “Viennese holiday game”. Please look into our event-calendar!
Every Sunday from 2 to 4 pm the Jewish Museum Vienna offers a fascinating program for children and families. We go on journeys—from Vienna to Bukhara, from New York to Jerusalem, or from Sarajevo to Mödling. On our travels we will also find out about the various holidays in the Jewish calendar, and will, of course, visit the temporary exhibitions and study Jewish history. Object design, Hebrew course, printing shop, finger puppet theater, photo competitions, and many other creative activities await you in our Atelier.
Advance booking requested: tel. +43 1 535 04 31-130 & -131 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Favorite! Select your favorite object from the Museum—small, large, modern, fabric or paper—the choice is huge. We will provide the background information and history, and in the Atelier you can design new inscriptions.
Shalom & Servas! Hebrew for (young) beginners. In the course, you will discover what the Hebrew letters, written from right to left, sound like, and will also learn a few simple sentences. And then you can make a nameplate, in Hebrew of course, to take home with you.
Greetings! Picture postcards from the Museum, a souvenir of your visit—made by you! During the guided tour of “Our City! Jewish Vienna Then to Now” you will discover famous men and women from Vienna. Then you can pretend to be Sigmund Freud, Fanny von Arnstein, or Theodor Herzl and design and write your postcards—greetings from the past to the present.
Familiar and unfamiliar! Large and small, noisy and quiet, comfortable and uncomfortable, kitsch and cool. Nothing is as it appears in “Our City!”. Vienna is diverse! Jewish, Turkish, Bosnian, American, Chinese, and much more. On a special children’s guided tour you can find out what is “Jewish” about Schönbrunn Palace and the Christmas tree and how come you all know a little Hebrew. In the Atelier you can then create works of art for our gallery of diversity (in cooperation with wienXtra).
Celina likes … What the museum doll Celina likes best. She lives in the Museum and listens at night to the stories told by the objects in the showcases. This afternoon she will present her favorite objects. In return she would like a portrait—of the object and of yourself.
Shavuot! Everything you always wanted to know about the Torah. At Shavuot, this year on June 12 and 13, the Ten Commandments and the Torah play a very important role. In the Museum you will discover exquisite Torah ornaments from all over the world, and then in the Atelier you can design your own Torah crowns.
Fan mail! After a tour of the exhibition “Stars of David,” we will paint fan mail to send to our favorite stars. The journey will take us from operetta to jazz, from musicals to pop, from Vienna to France, from Israel to Hollywood, and back again.
All kosher? Eating, drinking, and fasting. Equipped with smartphones or notebooks, we will look in the museum for tableware and cutlery, which you can photograph or draw. You will find out why dietary laws exist, what is allowed and what is prohibited. The Atelier will be transformed into a creative kitchen in which you can create modeling clay versions of your favorite kosher dishes to take home with you.
Global time travel! Are you ready for a journey with a difference? From Shanghai to Saalfelden, from Budapest to New York, from Altaussee to Jerusalem, from Sarajevo to Venice, or from Florida to Bukhara? Our travel guides are large, small, valuable, or simple objects that will tell you about Jewish history. After the tour through the three floors of the museum, we will design tickets for this special trip for a means of transport of your choice (in cooperation with wienXtra)
