Good design becomes especially apparent in use. That is why touching and testing many of the exhibits is explicitly allowed in the Red Dot Design Museum Essen. A guided tour specially designed for families starts on Sunday, 11 August 2019 at 3 p.m. During the one and a half hour long tour, visitors will learn about the characteristics of good design.
On an exhibition space of appr. 4,000 square meters both young and grown-up visitors can experience the complete range of modern and innovative product designs: from elaborate toys to exceptional furniture and stylish household items to computers and entertainment technology.

Participation fee: 5 € per person plus regular admission
