Highlights for kids
This tour offers your pupils a vivid introduction to the early days of the railway. The pupils get to know the most important exhibits, learn how the railways changed people's lives and have lots of fun finding out how a steam locomotive works. This tour is also available in English and French.
The railway ABC
What things make up a railway? It definitely has to have train engines and carriages. But there is much more to railways than that: for example, tracks, signals and train crew. The pupils expand their transport vocabulary and learn to tell their ballast from their bogies.
Adler & Co - wie funktioniert die Dampflok
The pupils play the role of passengers on the inaugural journey along the Nuremberg to Fürth line: Germany's first railway. They look inside a steam locomotive and figure out for themselves how it works. Along the way, they find out all about the development of the railway in the 19th century.
Time-travel at the DB Museum
Today's ICE trains travel from Nuremberg to Berlin in just three hours. But how long did it used to take passengers to cover this distance? The pupils visit five areas of the museum to explore how travel has changed from the steam age to today's high-speed railways.
