The Labyrinth Museum for Children (Labyrinth Kindermuseum) can be best described as an indoor playground with educational focus. On two floors and 1000 square meters, children can do all sorts of fun tasks, exercises and activities. The motto of the team behind this museum really believes in “learnings by doing”. Therefore every activity in this museum has an educational touch.
Current exhibition: Join in for a better tomorrow
The current exhibition is called Natürlich heute! Mitmachen für morgen. This means that we need to act today to improve tomorrow. A very important topic and a great initiative to start educating the children about it now. In the exhibition you can learn things like:
- Which types of food have the largest impact on the climate?
- Which animals are close to being extinct?
- How much water are you using every day?
- What can we do to improve our behaviour?
The exhibition Natürlich heute! Mitmachen für morgen is offered until August 2023.
An awesome activity for small children
Berlin has a lot to offer when it comes to activities for children. Most of these activities are especially fun for children between 6 and 12 years old. The Labyrinth Museum for Children is an exception to that: Here especially the smaller children are going to have a great time. Our son is 3,5 years old and he absolutely did not want to go home after 2 hours of playing in the Labyrinth Kindermuseum.
Crafting for older children + parents
Although we feel the actual exhibition is mainly fun for smaller children, the handcrafting is fun for older children too. During our visit we were allowed to decorate a very simple bird-feeder which we have in our garden now. It was fun to see that the parents were enjoying the decorating a lot too.

What are the opening hours?
Because of COVID, you currently have to choose a 2-hour-slot to visit the museum. During the weekends you can choose between 11.00, 13.30 and 16.00. On Fridays you can choose between 14.00 and 16.15. All other days (Monday – Thursday) the Labyrinth Museum for Children is closed. As these opening-hours will change when the regulations surrounding COVID change, it’s best to check the official website before you visit.
What is the best time to visit the museum?
The organisation behind the museum is doing a great job in avoiding too many children on the same floor. We started downstairs for 1 hour and then switched positions with the group upstairs the second hour. Because of this I think it’s never too crowded.
Can we eat something in the Labyrinth kindermuseum
There is small bistro for a coffee and a drink but there is no real restaurant. You are allowed to bring your own food but you have to eat it in the dedicated area, They do sell icecreams for the children by the way.
The Labyrinth Museum for Children is one of the greatest activities we have visited for our son (3,5 years old). It’s great to see that fun activities and learning can be combined so well.
