Hannover - Museums

    Sprengel Museum – The stated aim of the Sprengel Museum is to appeal to people from all walks of life, and that visitors, adults and children, experience the museum in a vivid way. To do this there are lots of programs using various media to help children encounter and experience art. The Children's Forum at the Sprengel Museum Hannover offers 'Art - Child's Play!' for kids over 6 every Tuesday and Thursday and weekend afternoons. Also on the weekends, kids can experiment with their own art – the museum provides paint and paper. The Mini Gallery provides individually-designed displays of Max Ernst, Fernand Leger, El Lissitzky that kids can experience up close.
