Children´s Museum Creaviva (Kindermuseum Creaviva)
Creaviva is the national competence center for practical, experience-oriented and interactive mediation and gives young people access to art through their own creative work.

The Creaviva Children’s Museum is integrated into the Centre Paul Klee as an independent organizational unit. The Centre Paul Klee, built according to plans by Renzo Piano, opened in 2005. Paul Klee was not just a painter, musician and man of letters, but also a very dedicated educator. The idea for a children’s museum is based on the aim of giving children and young people in particular access to art and culture through their own creative work. The Creaviva sees itself as a national competence center for practical, interactive, inclusive and collaborative art education and cultural mediation.


Three principal offers form the basis of the activities at Creaviva, unique in Switzerland. Every year, more than 10.000 visitors participate in workshops in one of the three studios. The free temporary  Interactive Exhibitions in the loft invite guets to develop their perception and skills. Three times a day Creaviva invites visitors to the “Open Studio” in order to discover the techniques used by Paul Klee and other artists.


The Creaviva’s main goal is to ensure that each visit to the centre provides a new opportunity for exploration into the universe of art while discovering your own creative talents at the same time.
