In conjunction with our alternating exhibitions, the Vitra Design Museum offers a variety of workshops for school-age children and youth, university students and other interested visitors. The programme ranges from children’s workshops to activities for school classes to enjoyable recreational workshops for groups.

All of the workshops are oriented towards the respective target audience and based on sound didactic methods, providing insights into the design process as well as the associated requirements of imagination, rational thinking and manual dexterity. The aim is to increase the awareness of our everyday culture among participants and to inspire creative engagement with their own designed environment.

The »Wunderkammer« presents an engaging display of more than one thousand objects from the collection of former Vitra Chairman Rolf Fehlbaum. Similar to its historical antecedents, the Wunderkammer on the Vitra Campus brings together curiosities and artefacts from around the world.
