The art of Ulla Wiggen can be explored particularly well with small tasks and puzzles, for there is so much to discover: computers, people, landscapes, human organs and even the iris of the eye! Afterwards, every participant is invited to pick up their very own museum explorer diploma.
Ideal age: 6–12. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

International Museum Day is being coordinated by Deutscher Museumsbund in cooperation with ICOM Germany and the federal museum associations and offices.
