Group visits and guided tours

Class visits

School groups are an important part of our visitors. We want to get young people to think about the theme of migration and what it entails. Because it is still relevant today. That is why we like to give classes the chance to visit our museum. To avoid COVID-19 contamination between generations and to ensure that everyone can visit the museum safely, we keep a certain amount of time slots free for school groups. No individual visits can take place then.
