Birthday at the museum

A day to remember

Birthday at the museum

Take souvenirs with you

Celebrate your birthday at the museum!

Children’s birthdays are great! Especially if you can celebrate them somewhere a bit different.

The SCHLOSS FÜRSTENBERG MUSEUM enables girls and boys to enjoy a first-hand experience of the material porcelain and spend several exciting hours with their friends.

We offer two different birthday party programmes at the museum. The group of children must be accompanied by a supervisory adult. A museum employee will furthermore guide and accompany the group throughout the programme.

Following the booked programme, you can explore the exhibition under your own steam.

Children’s birthday parties must be pre-booked at an arranged date and time.
