MINI MAK is a program for our youngest museum visitors ages 4 and up.
Tours and Workshops for Children Aged 4+
New exhibitions and interesting museum exhibits beg to be—and should be!—discovered in a way that’s fun, entertaining, exciting,
inspired, informative, and creative, too. The artistic potential of young visitors to the museum is fostered and furthered
in workshops with artists or the MAK’s educational team.

MINI MAK Menu
Everything about the MAK—Inside and Out Discover the architecture of the MAK. How do architects draw staircases or doors on a plan? How much light does the museum
need? What does the museum’s façade tell us from the outside? Become an architect for a day and design your very own museum!
Wild Animals in the MAK: I Want to Eat You! No need to be afraid—they’re all well behaved. We’ve found monsters, horses, dragons, lions, tigers, crocodiles, and snakes
in the MAK. Can you find even more on your hunt for wild animals in the museum?
Higgledy-Piggledy: I Spy with My Little Eye … A silver sofa, flat cutlery, a blue goose, a kitchen tree, a green washing machine-cum-seat, an elephant’s trunk table, secret
compartments … We’ll have a look at how shades change shapes and forms change function.
Sitting and Staying Put: What’s Comfy? Cross-legged, sitting like a Buddha, the three-legged stool, sitting on the sitting machine, the ladies’ sofa, lying on Franz
West’s divan—the MAK provides inspiration. What’s your favorite way to sit? Show us!
With MINI MAK through China and Japan—Lots Comes from There There’s a lot to be learned from ancient Chinese grave finds—what’s a unicorn doing there? How did people use to live back
then in a Chinese village? What did (and do) the Japanese drink their tea from? What does a samurai sword look like? And how
did it all end up in the museum?
A Taste of the Orient: 1001 Mornings and 1001 Afternoons MINI MAK has chosen fables from One Thousand and One Nights that will be told in front of the precious carpets. Prepare to
be “enchanted” by Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, Aladdin’s Wonderful Lamp, and the Magic Horse.
The MINI MAK Guide (available at the MAK Design Shop) is an unusual kind of museum guide: it’s a children’s manual for using the museum. The
characters MINI and MAKS stroll through the MAK’s permanent collection in search of what interests them, discovering the museum
in a new way that’s perfectly geared to children.
