45th International Museum Day

International Museum Day is taking place for the 45th time this year. The day of action is intended to draw attention to museums and their diversity worldwide and invites visitors to discover them.

On 15 May, museums in Dessau-Roßlau will once again be taking part, some of them with free admission.

From 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., guests can visit the exhibition of the Bauhaus Museum free of charge and also take part in a special guided tour of the museum. There will also be hands-on experiments on the ground floor of the museum.
All information is available on the Bauhaus website.

The Museum of City History in the Johann Building will also open its doors free of charge on Sunday. A special feature will be that the Altan in the basement of the stair tower will be opened for two children’s readings.

At 11 a.m., museum director Carla Backhaus will read from the book “The Hiccup Princess” and at 1 p.m. the head of the city library Marc Lakotta and his wife will read from the book “The Knight Who Wouldn’t Fight.” There is no need to pre-register for either event, but for capacity reasons you should be there in good time. Children are not required to wear masks, but their accompanying person should wear a mask on the premises.

The Museum of Natural History and Prehistory will also open its doors and the museum tower to visitors free of charge from 10.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m.

In addition, the Hugo Junkers Museum of Technology will be open to the public at the normal admission prices. The Garden Kingdom of Dessau-Wörlitz is offering various special openings on this day in its parks. These can be found in the Foundation’s calendar of events.
