The Übersee-Museum offers a various supporting program for adults related to the themes of the house. The program includes classic guided tours as well as special offerings, such as museum talks, musical or creative workshops, open drumming groups on weekends and after hours, and more. For the special exhibitions, additional programs are offered.

Museum’s mediation team will be happy to advise and answer questions about individual offers. This is also the right place for anyone planning an event themselves. That is because various formats of the house can be booked on request for private groups. If there is a special request – like a special themed tour for a birthday or even a game on Javanese gamelan instruments – it’s worth asking!

The upcycling reef

Bringing the endangered and fragile beauty of maritime ecosystems to Bremen: (hand)working together to create a colorful and magnificent coral reef! The special thing about this participatory artwork is that we want to create something new from already used materials or "not-in-use" objects.
