The Museum’s little mascot “Gockel Gero” is a clever cockerel who knows how to tell about history and who is named after “Gero”, the man who gave Gerlingen its name. Children and young people can wander through the museum learning about the town’s history as they solve the museum’s quiz.
Schools, kindergarten and groups of children can book a guided tour or a workshop with various themes. In the school holidays children between 8 and 12 years old can come to craft and cookery workshops which fit in with the subjects of the temporary and permanent exhibitions.
As well as all that, children between the ages of 5 and 13 can celebrate their birthday in the museum.
