The Bundeskunsthalle approaches social inclusion and the challenges of a changing society and its demographic transition with active solutions. We are committed to providing all visitors with the opportunity of cultural participation by enabling a creative and individual approach to our museum. This does not only include the exhibitions but also the accompanying educational programme. For this reason we develop offers specifically designed to convey displays and events to people with special needs.
