The Kids Museum of Glass 2.0 is a contemporary art and design museum in a converted former glass-making workshop. The museum’s explorative visiting experience aims to encourage independent learning in a playful kids-friendly environment. The 2,320 m2-space is dominated by a sleek, monochromatic palette which highlights the vibrant colors used on exhibits, dynamic surfaces and installations. Black metal staircases, platforms and custom-made glass-walls are inserted into the open plan space to create a dialogue with the original wooden structures and exposed brick walls.
