I See, I See, What You Don’t See
Where, if not in the exhibition about Arik Brauer and his diverse and richly detailed art, can this game be better tried out? Experience art, design, architecture, painting, drawings, ceramics, dance, music and set design with your own eyes! As a memento and for visits to other exhibitions, we make cool glasses that simply let you see EVERYTHING even better…
Happy New Year!
In the autumn? Yes! At the Jewish Museum Vienna! Rosh Hashanah, which is celebrated for two days, begins on the evening of September 29. During an exciting children’s tour you will find out why the Jewish year starts in the fall, why sweets play an important role and why crumbs are thrown into flowing water. And then we will just have enough time to design artful New Year’s cards for you and your families in the museum's Atelier.

Shofar, so good!
The Shofar horn is a very old instrument that has a very loud and piercing sound. Between the Jewish New Year and Yom Kippur, this sound is heard in the synagogue. All over the world, Jewish women and men celebrate the most important holiday of the year, which takes place this year on October 9. On this particular Sunday at the Jewish Museum you will find out why empty plates and the color white are important, why you throw bread crumbs into flowing water, and how all of this can be combined with Origami.
Sunday, October 13
We celebrate Sukkot!
Since the Sukkot festival is starting this year on the evening of October 13, we have to hurry up a bit! Foliage-covered huts, called “sukkot” in Hebrew, are urgently needed. They commemorate the 40-year migration of the Israelites through the desert, where they lived in huts after being liberated from Egyptian slavery. You will get all the information about the festival and then seek inspiration for setting up your own miniature sukkah in the exhibition “Arik Brauer – All of My Arts.”
Sunday, October 20
We celebrate Simchat Torah!
Simchat Torah is the last of the high Jewish holidays in autumn. The Torah and its beautiful ornaments, which can be found everywhere in the Jewish Museum, play the main role. You get to know the objects and their Hebrew names, and then draw a comic strip: In our story, the objects leave the museum and look for the places in Vienna and Austria where they were once used. A bit like “Night at the Museum,” but just on paper. And certainly more suspenseful!

Shalom Vienna – Out and about in Vienna
On this particular afternoon we meet very famous guests at the Jewish Museum Vienna: Sigmund Freud, Marilyn Monroe, Albert Einstein, Elvis Presley, and even Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart are looking for favorite objects. We turn it into a real museum theater and let the past and present play at the same time in this piece. Since people, as tourists, like to take a souvenir from the trip along with them, we make snow globes for the celebrities.
Sunday, November 3
Ivrit means “Hebrew.” Scheli means “my.” “My Hebrew” is an exciting program for young people ages 6 to 10 who are curious and creative. We’ll search the whole museum for Hebrew letters on objects – paintings, Torah ornaments, and even dishes. We’ll write our names with the letters of the Hebrew alphabet and design an artistic word folder for all the “milim chadashim.” We’ll tell you what that exactly means at the museum. Hebrew skills are not required at all.
Sunday, November 10
...in the Shabbat Room? A cool installation of photos and objects that tells about Shabbat, the Jewish day of rest, awaits you at the Jewish Museum. Our chilled-out children’s tour shows you all the objects that are important to Shabbat and why it makes sense to do nothing sometimes. Your creativity is then in demand, because you’ll set up your own (small) Shabbat rooms – with everything you need for resting!
Sunday, November 17
Apprenticeship & scissors
This is a workshop for those who like to design cool stuff, love paper and have funny ideas! We’ll start with a walk through the museum, where we’ll find all the objects from the “Holy Land.” The Gottfried & Söhne museum shop offers modern design from Israel and invites you to create your own advertising – with paper and scissors. During your apprenticeship as an adwoman or adman, you’ll be looking for your favorite pieces in the shop and design your own advertising for them.
Sunday, November 24
Our city – plays!
Do you like to play? Board games, card games, dominoes or something you invent? Then you are in the right place at the Jewish Museum on this Sunday! During an exciting tour of ALL floors, we’ll be looking for games – and you’ll even find something Chinese. The games and whatever other great objects you’ll discover are designed into a new game – Museum Memory – by you!
