Family audio guide

Download the audio guide to your smartphone, put on your headphones and go on a guided tour for the entire family.

The family audio guide takes our youngest visitors on a voyage of discovery through the Museum. You can listen to Marzella’s story – she steps out of the painting Marzella by Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, at night. She feeds Rauchenberg’s goat, jumps across the bridges in Ekster’s Venice, and gets her feet wet in Matisse’s Moroccan Landscape…


It’s easy to download the free audio guide-app to your smartphone in App Store or Google Play.

Free wifi is available in the museum.


Requires iOS 6.1 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.
