on.tour: The Jewish Museum Berlin Toured Schools

Our Traveling Educational Program for Schools All Across Germany 2007–2018

on.tour: The Jewish Museum Berlin Tours Schools was a traveling educational program that visited secondary schools and other institutions across Germany from 2007 to 2018. This way we could reach kids and teens who would otherwise not have had a chance to visit the Jewish Museum Berlin.

In 2020, the Jewish Museum Berlin will open its new core exhibition and a children's museum across the street. Building on the programmatic reorientation associated with these major projects, the outreach program will also be developed further in line with the times starting in 2019 (more on the new outreach programs).
