And in the afternoon we’ll go the the Museum!

Berlin’s museum landscape is unique. In over 180 museums, the masterpieces, treasures, large art collections, scientific phenomena and impressive archeological finds are on display.

Our ‘After-School Museums Visits Program’ started last year and offers our students in Years 4, 5 and 6 the possibility to take part once a month in an excursion to the magnificent museums of Berlin. We kicked it off with a visit to the Märkisches Museum with Year 6 in October and were led through the exhibit: ‘Kaiserzeit und Kindheit – Berlin um 1900’.

In November, the boys and girls of the 5a traveled to the Deutsches Historisches Museum. They were there given a tour of the permanent exhibition ‘Deutsche Geschichte in Bildern und Zeugnissen’. In the Bode Museum the 4a had a tour of ‘Antike Mythen’ where they learnt about gods, heroes and their history. In January, 4b visited the Alte Nationalgalerie and saw the gorgeous art collections. The children chose their favourite portrait and discussed art and the old classics.

Yesterday, the children of 6a had an interesting tour: ‘Alltag im antiken Griechenland’ at the Altes Museum and had a glimpse into the everyday life of several strands of society: from lessons at greek school, work in the household or to the working steps of a craftsman.

All of the tours up to now have been made very interactive and age appropriate. The children in 5a can already look forward to their visit to the Neues Museum next month where they will experience the tour: ‘Auf der Spur des Menschen in der Bronzezeit’.

There are still plenty of museums and exhibitions we want to discover and learn about this school year. These places preserve our history, art and knowledge. We thank our teacher Dr. Jeremy Stahl for his wonderful idea to open the world up to our Platanus children and to our Parent’s Association for financing the project.
