Everything begins with MINI MAK

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.


Every third Sunday of the month (except July, August, December) at 11 a.m. One-hour children’s tours on ever- changing topics.
Free Admission for children and teens under 19, € 7.50 for accompanying adults

The MAK’s storytellers know lots of good stories about the museum, about collection exhibits from various ages and  cultures, as well as about current exhibitions.


  • 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.
