Come in and get creative at the SMK Christmas workshops this December. At our ‘Sundays for Kids’ events you can (over)decorate a Christmas tree so that it ends up looking like a sculpture. Every Sunday our guides focus on Christmas themes – including some of the difficult aspects of Christmas, such as poverty and troublesome family relations.
Creative Christmas workshops
Follow the sound of squeaking cotton-wool and busy scissors, and you’ll find The Children’s Workshop. Every weekend, you can visit the workshop to produce Christmas decorations and Christmas art out of all kinds of fun materials. The museum’s own in-house artists are ready to help you if you need a bit of inspiration. Recommended for ages 3 and up.
Dates: 2, 3, 9, 10, 16 and 17 December from 11.30 to 16.30
Price: DKK 30 plus standard admission fee.
Sundays for Kids: Decorate a Christmas tree
Lots and lots of angels, stars, elves and paper chains. Join us for Sundays for Kids and help us decorate a Christmas tree with so many ornaments that it ends up looking like a sculpture. We have piles of gold and silver paper, cotton wool, chenille stems, angel feathers and every colour of the rainbow. Recommended for ages 3 and up.
Date: 3 December from 11.30 to 15.30
Free to all ticket/pass holders.
Ris a la mande and hot cocoa
Need a break? In December, the café’s list of treats includes the traditional Danish rice-based pudding ris a la mande – and you can warm yourself with a steaming mug of hot cocoa.
The museum is closed on 24, 25, 31 December 2017 and 1 January 2018.
