Dive into the Picture! Time Travel for Kids

Kids exhibition, up to 18 years admission free

Pei Building, Ground floor


Who hasn’t wished at some time in their life to slip into an old painting from past times, meet the people there, and find out how they lived? The exhibition “Dive into the Picture! A Time Journey for Kids” invites young museum guests of primary school age and their families to explore one of the famous Augsburg pictures of the months from the 16th century. Like entering a kind of pop-up book, we dive into the picture and the life of the time. The people depicted in the paintings tell their own stories and give the young visitors access to four different fields of medieval life: people, game, trade and nature. But did life 500 years ago really look like this? What does the painting tell us about the past and what does it not disclose?

Guided Tours for Children

Exhibition for everyone

The exhibition is designed for inclusion and appeals to all senses. All texts are offered in Easy Language, German Sign Language, Braille, and Large Print as well as in German and English. Inscriptions are offered in tactile writing or audio descriptions. Interactive and multisensorial interventions are also available; topics can be experienced through touch, hearing or sight. The exhibition is largely barrier-free. Objects are displayed at different heights and showcases are designed so that wheelchairs can roll up closely.

Children’s Advisory Board

For the first time the museum worked on this new exhibition format together with a Children’s Advisory Board. These “Clever Magic Dragons”, aged 8 to 12, have acted as idea generators and testers in all phases of the planning and design of the exhibition and have proved to be important companions.
