Teachers and school groups

Lehmbruck Museum is a popular destination for school outings. The extensive sculpture collection enables students to quickly develop a sense for three-dimensional works and art in space. In the process, they can enjoy observing the sculptures thoroughly from different angles.  This enables them to obtain crucial insights. The numerous exhibits also convey an impression of more recent art history, the development process behind the works, the different materials, and the interrelationships between art and society.

Individual services

There are various services for teachers and their school groups specifically tailored to the school curriculum and the needs of each particular age group. These range from classic tours and workshops to informative events for each new exhibition, as well as further training courses for teachers. It is also possible to arrange individually designed teacher training courses.
