“Design at the fingertips”: guided tour for families

Public tour
11 August 2019
15:00 - 16:30 h

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.

For families with children from 7 years (in German)

Participation fee: 5 € per person plus regular admission
Admission: 6 € (reduced admission: 4 €)
Children under 12: Free admission

As the group size allows for a maximum of 25 participants, the Red Dot Design Museum kindly asks for previous registration by phone on +49 201 30104-60 or via e-mail to museum(at)

Important note

Please note: The Red Dot Design Museum will be open on Monday, 25 August 2019. Due to the dismantling of an exhibition, however, a small part of the museum is not accessible. Visitors therefore pay an admission fee of only 6 euros (instead of 9 euros, reduced: 4 euros).
