Schools and groups

The Dornier Museum is a place of extra-mural learning, in which the understanding of technology, history and new innovations is communicated across disciplines and through experience-driven participation.


Our team of committed museum educators aims to do more than just convey facts. They regularly work with youngsters, asking them questions, actively involving them, conducting research to devise innovative approaches and finding new ways to foster their creativity, scientific curiosity and historical awareness. We consider it vital for children and young people to learn about the past – for only understanding how our world and our concept of it has changed can equip them to create new ideas on how to tackle the challenges of the future.


For Children and teens of all ages the Dornier Museum offers a diverse educational program in cooperation with local educational institutions, associations and companies.


Guidance concerning access and catering possibilities is available on site – but only in German. You can find it over here.


Further information can be obtained and arrangements made at least three weeks previously at telephone number +49 7541 4873611 or by e-mail.
