Cultural outreach

Alongside each of its exhibitions, mudac offers various forms of activities, from the classic guided tour to specific projects aimed at a particular audience.

The variety of these activities allows the museum to reach a very wide audience, but also to highlight the omnipresence of design and the applied arts in everyday life.

Workshops, guided tours, workshops, teaching resources, lectures… All these events are adapted to the general public as well as to schoolchildren, students, families, professionals from various fields and people with disabilities.

In addition to entertainment and the dissemination of scientific content, the activities are built around the development of cross-disciplinary skills such as collaboration, reflective practice and creative thinking. During the workshops and tours, societal issues raised by the exhibitions are regularly discussed with the participants. The mudac cultural outreach programme thus functions as an extension of the exhibitions.


mudac has a wide range of offers for the novice and the curious as well as for design enthusiasts.

Youth and Families

mudac is open to young and old alike and offers a variety of formats, from creative workshops and tours to family routes that provide tools to better understand design and its issues.

Schools and teachers

mudac is delighted to welcome school classes to its new halls and its cultural outreach room, as young people are the audience of tomorrow.
