Fun for children, relaxation for adults

While parents enjoy selected afternoon performances in the Theater in der Josefstadt and in the Kammerspielen, children between four and ten years of age can visit the costume workshops and costume wardrobe for free, and play, build and paint with artists of the ZOOM Children's Museum.

At children's workshops in the Volksoper, music-inspired kids from eight to fourteen years old experience musical theater close up and personal through play, song and dance. For a whole afternoon, artists teach them all there is to know about opera, ballet and the diverse world of the orchestra and its instruments.

Many museums offer wide-ranging programs aimed especially at a younger audience - parents can use the time to view exhibitions at their leisure:

  • Children up to 14 years of age are invited to discover the world with all the senses in the ZOOM Children's Museum. The grown-ups can also join in or use the time to visit another museum or a restaurant in the MuseumsQuartier.
  • In the Belvedere, children from three to twelve years of age attend children's Sundays, where they learn secrets about art treasures, after which they can get creative in the Pinselstrich Studio. 
  • On family Sundays in the Albertina, children from five years of age can participate in hands-on tours and then put their own ideas into art works in the studio. 
  • Children from two to six years of age can explore the free play station in the atrium of the Wien Museum. On Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays in the winter months, the play station is supervised by mediators.

Parents can do a spot of relaxed shopping in the Millennium Tower on the banks of the Danube, while the children play in the Monki Park, an indoor family-oriented park with high-rope climbing garden, jungle trampoline and toddler area: supervision for children aged 2 ½ years and over is provided twice a week.
