Family Day

Sunday, October 17, 2021, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.

On the Family Day for the “CLOSE-UP” and “Goya” exhibitions, everything revolves around the portrait, and around questions such as “Who am I?” “Who are you?” or “Who is he or she?” And “How do we want to be seen?” Family tours offer entertaining ways of engaging with the works and themes in the exhibitions. Small children can take a ride on the storytelling carpet. Numerous workshops provide activities around the themes of portraits, personality, and identity. Games and activity books encourage visitors to explore the exhibitions for themselves—and those wanting to find out more can take a tour of the park with our museum squirrel.

When: Sunday, October 17, 2021, 10 a.m – 6 p.m.
Where: Exhibitions "CLOSE-UP" and "Goya", in the park, in case of bad weather in Hall 20
