Porzellanikon offers exciting family programs for all those who are curious, hungry for experience and eager to discover.
Family afternoons (maximum duration 2.5 hours) Every third Sunday of the month the family afternoon starts at 14:30! There is always an exciting guided tour through a special or permanent exhibition followed by a creative programme - in line with the motto of the respective family afternoon. Young and old can get creative! You can find the current dates in our event flyer. On a discovery tour with a museum backpackFor spontaneous holiday visitors, weekend getaways or families on short notice, Porzellanikon offers the museum backpack. With the research sheets it contains, with experimental and search tasks and various materials, it helps to interactively experience the department of porcelain production and facilitates understanding of the manufacturing processes. The museum rucksack invites you to touch and listen closely and complements the visit to the museum in a child-friendly manner. The museum rucksack can be borrowed free of charge from the museum ticket offices in Hohenberg an der Eger and Selb.

Festivals and events Throughout the year we organize festivals where families are always welcome: The annual broom-burning to drive out the cold winter, the May Festival in the factory on May 1, the International Museum Day, the Museum Festival in Hohenberg on the Eger and the Open Monument Day are just some of the many opportunities to visit our house.
