Two years of the pandemic have also led to changes for us. However, one thing has remained unchanged: our first-class museum tours!
They are run by women volunteers who all stand in the middle of life. Well trained, not only in regular in-house training courses, they have a great deal of knowledge from a wide range of disciplines. This makes it easy for them to link the many topics in the museum and to put them into understandable words. Of course, the words may sound different on a guided tour for children than on a guided tour for adults. Inevitably, and appreciated by the guests, the Bavarian language is used. Like the mammoth, the ladies come from Chiemgau and like living here.
Enjoy the pleasure of such a guided tour. You will be charmingly guided through the museum. You will learn exciting background knowledge and interesting details. You listen, marvel and learn the best about the museum's contents at first hand.

Stations are set up in the Stone Age Garden where visitors can drill and grind, bind, paint and make things on their own. Everything can be tried out. So everyone can find their "favourite work" and of course take home what they have made. After an hour, everyone gathers around the campfire. Here, without guidance, the excursion can be concluded with a snack and good mood.Important: The course can only be booked from April to October. The practical part takes place outdoors.
