Favorite place contest

Your wishes and ideas are needed

Maybe you have already heard: The team of the Übersee-Museum has written a “future concept”. It states, for example, that the Übersee-Museum will become a “living room for society”. It’s a place where people from Bremen and all over the world meet, where they can spend time, talk and discuss with each other, rest, learn, play or even work. We have already collected some ideas on how this can look – but your ideas are still missing! It is important to us to also see the museum “through your eyes” in order to be able to consider children’s wishes in the later “new Übersee-Museum”.

The “Favorite Place Challenge”

That’s why we would be delighted if you took part in our ideas competition. If you are between the ages of 6 and 12, think about this: where would be your favorite place in the museum? How does it look like there? What would you like to do there and who are you there with? Paint, build and photograph or write your ideas down and email it to zukunft@uebersee-museum.de by April 20. You are also welcome to send us your picture, collage, or model by post or drop off your contribution at the museum box office. Don’t forget to ask your parents to fill out the contest consent form and send it along.

Thank you for your participation

For this, we have come up with something special: all submissions will be shown in the museum and a children’s jury will select the five most beautiful entries. The presentation and award ceremony will take place on International Children’s Day on June 1, 2022 at the Übersee-Museum. All participants with their (grand)parents and siblings are invited to the event. You can look forward to a varied afternoon with children’s program in any case! If you can’t be there on this date don’t worry – all participants will also receive a family ticket for a visit at the Übersee-Museum on their preferred date.
