The neustadt museum and local history society, now a forderverein, has been paying since 1. June to the five members of the newly founded association "museums in the coburg region. His new board is already full of ideas: with remarkable offers small and coarse museum visitors are to be inspired.
Chairwoman hannelore muller had come up with something special for this occasion: everyone who was interested in the museum with the toy industry was invited to a cozy coffee afternoon at the museum of the german toy industry. "Today we meet in a different way in the neustadt museum. We wanted to "collect ideas" in a relaxed round of talks, wished muller. May the club experience a bit of revival. "I would also like to get the members to come to the museum again in this way. And i also liked to bury new members in this cozy atmosphere."
Maybe we should dock to the monthly meetings of the costume group, a proposal of muller, which was buried spontaneously. During the discussion, topics and ideas for the design of offers came up: perhaps a course on traditional costumes could take place in cooperation with the adult education center "which could perhaps also arouse interest among young people", said muller, said muller. One could join the alpine club to hike in the home country, the region and thuringia. "We are also a museum and local history association", reminded muller. Also the contact with the museums in the region like the sheep museum in ahorn could be cultivated as a partner exchange. Museum employee mandy dollas-brandner reported on the museum pedagogy already taking place for children, young people and adults. "We have a museum educational program also for u-classes (transitional classes middle school) with an extra program for schoolchildren, with the emphasis on learning the german language", informed dollas-brandner.
New is also the discovery tour from this school year for school groups, which are guided through the museum. There is also a vacation care program with the youth help center in neustadt. There is also a monthly children’s creative workshop and much more. A brand new feature for all visitors this year is the "museum out of the bag" with exciting content to explore. "At the same time, history is packaged in an exciting way", said dollas-brandner.
Museum director udo habner-leidner reported that the main focus was on guided tours of the museum, which mainly went through the industrial department. This could be combined with other events.
It’s all about love money
Third mayor martin stingl (SPD) reported on the major upheaval in the museum and local history association. "We have had a forced restructuring, have had the gross insecurity for the museum staff and employees. Everything costs a lot of money, and everything that happens here in the museum does not happen on the basis of this new financing by the county", according to stingl. Much more money is not available than before. Mvn
