The Museum of Literature has opened on 23 May, the Archive and the library on 27 May.
Learning in Marbach always also means: getting to know the global language of poetry from more than one side and especially learning to study it in the logic of its development. Reading, but also writing, with the power of the imagination and with joy in thinking. The art of description can also be learned here and taken into the living world: for even the natural sciences and technology, the law and management require the ability to express oneself beautifully and clearly.
As a classical institution of education, the German Literature Archive gives schools the chance to expand their curriculum and shows visitors of every age and background richness of aesthetic culture preserved in the archive.
The museums offer tours and workshops, readings and theme days, as well as one-week and multi-week project seminars that are relevant to the temporary and permanent exhibitions.
Our counseling teacher for cooperation with schools develops offers for teachers to further their training. She also organizes readings and tours for schoolchildren that go beyond the topcis of the museums and are prepared directly in the archive and the library.
