Educational offer for groups and school classes
The educational program is possible only after a previous appointment, for groups of 10 people, but not for individual visitors.


First visit the doll town "Mon Plaisir"
For the first visit to the Castle Museum, we recommend a tour of the doll town including yourselves crafting a doll to make your visit a memorable experience.

A child enjoys dressing up, goes back in time and lands, to the astonishment of the others, in the middle of the Baroque period. With little stories you will be guided through the doll town  and explore the life of the 18th century in miniature. After the tour and simply listening to the guide, it is time to get to work. Auguste Dorothea’s dolls were never meant to be playe with. The rod puppets which the children can build have only that one purpose. Quickly the head is mounted on the fuselage, the face is painted, the white-powdered nose mounted, the fitting wig sought, the clothing ruffled and the jewels threaded. Hardly coiffed, their hair put up or tied to a ponytail, the dolls have already come to life and started to talk to each other about life at court.

Number of participants / Age: max. 25 participants, preschool through third grade
Costs (Material costs): € 2.50 per doll

For older children, from about 4th grade, we recommend "Funny finger puppets in the knit tube dress" for the same price.


Further information:
The creative part is always preceded by a tour through selected areas of the New Palace.

In addition to the cost of materials the entrance fee needs to be payed (School class fee 10,00 €). More guided tours without the creative part are of course also possible after registration, for example a tour through the doll town “Mon Plaisir” and the “J. S. Bach” tour (45 minutes each) or the doll town and the “Beletage” – exhibition of old furniture and other antiques (about 90 minutes). A visit to the special exhibition may vary time. A guided tour costs 30,00 € per group (up to 30 people). For our current exhibitions we often offer special tours and creative activities as well.

Some of our offers from the past do still exist and can of course also be booked, for example: "Arnstadt in the Medieval Walling" or "Arnstadt in Changing Times," "The Art of Papermaking," Ley Automobile (small wooden cars) and "Writing Materials in the Course of Time". Within our creative offer it may also be dyed with madder during the summer months. All the offers are always preceded by a guided tour through Arnstadt.

We also offer tours to and through the Arnstadt zoo “Fasanerie”. After the tour visitors may process wool or create funny little snakes from felt.  During the cold season we build food bells for the animals. New offer: Creating small animals made from tree trunks and moss rubber. For small groups we also offer full-time care and other features such as the "pet license".
