Guided tours and programmes for school classes

Every school class must be supervised by two accompanying persons. They are free of charge. The supervisory duty of accompanying guests is mandatory during the whole visit and cannot be transferred to employees of the terra mineralia.

We always recommend a school programme or a guided tour for school classes. Please note that school programmes have a duration of two hours. We do not recommend a free visit without scientific support and managing from our side.

School children discover their enthusiasm for natural sciences at terra mineralia. The 'Expedition' – the hands-on laboratory – was designed especially for this, and was directly integrated into the exhibition. Here, students of the TU Bergakademie Freiberg explain the mineralogical and geological sciences. For pupils, the 'Expedition' presents the opportunity to learn about a subject field come across in various subjects at school in an exciting new way and through interesting experiments. The programmes offered are age-appropriate and follow the Saxon curriculum. In addition to holding a density scale, various microscopes, and even a scanning electron microscope, many minerals and rocks can also be touched and examined in the 'Expedition'.
