“Design at the fingertips”: guided tour for families

Public tour
13 August 2017
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 for families starts on Sunday, 13 August 2017 at 3 p.m. During the one and a half hour long walkthrough, visitors will learn about the characteristics of good design.

Which trends are the latest? And which cultural and country-specific characteristics can be discovered? On 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 stylish household items to exceptional furniture.

For families with children from 7 years (in German language)

Participation fee: 5 € per person plus regular admission
