Summer Party

Launching the Cultural Summer Program

Let's party in the Garden! (and in case of rain in the Glass Courtyard)

The cultural summer program this year is all about Abraham, the forefather of the three religions Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, and his children. At the big summer party, the museum garden will be transformed into a stage and the plane grove into an oasis – visitors great and small can enjoy the Israeli-Iranian band "Sistanagila" on the summer stage, explore our special exhibition, listen to the musical-story theater at the fountain, and relish Turkish and Israeli specialties. An exciting detective game, traditional braided-bread baking, instrument making and lots, lots more await children. And, who knows, maybe you will even bump into an angel in the Museum Garden...

Challot Baking
We will be kneading and baking for all we're worth to make traditional braided loaves and bake them in the Museum Garden’s clay oven.

Our very small visitors can squeal around the corners on two, three, or four wheels on our big gokart track

Here tunes up an unusual orchestra – children build a ram's horn and other musical instruments from recycling materials and then have fun playing them together.

Delicious Food
Selected Israeli and Turkish specialties from Djimalaya and Mamas Food Manufaktur will be on the menu and the ice cream manufacturer from Kreuzberg "Vanille & Marille" will be offering mouth-watering scoops of artisan ice cream.
