FAQs

Can I bring my own guide with me for my group (licensed tour)?

Only guides trained and certified by us are allowed to lead tours of our exhibitions. We thank you for your understanding.

From what age is the exhibition suitable for children?

Some sections of our exhibition Munich and National Socialism address topics such as war and violence and contain images that may be disturbing. We offer a free media guide specially designed for young people from the age of fourteen that introduces them to the topic of National Socialism in an age-appropriate manner. There is also a family media guide designed for parents to visit together with children over the age of ten. This guide omits the sections of the exhibition that contain images of violence. You can also book tours and other educational programs for groups of children and young people.
