What age is the NAWAREUM suitable for?
The NAWAREUM is a hands-on museum for people of all ages! There are easy to understand as well as more challenging hands-on stations and information in each area.
Especially for children between the ages of 6 and 12, we have a children's track that runs through the entire exhibition. The corresponding stations are marked with a diamond.
We have observed that children under the age of 6 also have a lot of fun discovering the NAWAREUM. In this age group, supervision by parents plays a particularly important role.
Duration of stay
How much time should I plan for a visit to the NAWAREUM?
Most guests stay at the NAWAREUM for 1–3 hours. Since our bistro is open for visitors to unwind before or after their visit to the exhibition, you are welcome to plan a little more time. You can even leave the exhibition temporarily and take a break – your admission ticket is valid for the whole day.
Eating & Drinking
In which languages are the exhibition texts?
All exhibition texts are available in German and English. The videos in the exhibition contain optional English subtitles. For deaf or hearing-impaired people, all videos also have either a translation into German Sign Language (DGS) or German subtitles.
The audio stations are so far only available in German and without transcript.
Who created the artwork made of illuminated glass bottles in the foyer?
The artwork is called "Wave" and was created by Tom Kristen, an artist with roots in Straubing. The design was chosen over eight other entries in a competition held by the Staatliches Bauamt Passau (Passau State Building Authority). The costs of the artwork - around 120,000 Euros - were provided by the Free State of Bavaria for Kunst am Bau as part of the building measure. You can find all information about the competition Kunst am Bau at the NAWAREUM here: https://stadtlandbau.de/kunst-am-bau/nawareum/
Who designed the building and how much did it cost?
The building was designed by DÖMGES Architekten AG in Regensburg. The developer was the Staatliches Bauamt Passau (Passau State Building Authority). The total construction costs amounted to 22 million euros, which were jointly financed by the Bavarian State Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Forestry and the Bavarian State Ministry of Economic Affairs, Regional Development and Energy.
