Program for Children

LEGO Workroom

As in previous years, you can come with your children to an open workroom with LEGO® bricks, where you can build the house of your dreams using special white bricks! The littlest builders can play with DUPLO bricks. Located at the Hybernská Campus and organized in collaboration with Czech RepuBRICK, the workroom is open for free from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. all weekend.

Open Senses

Interactive City Game

Families with children can also participate in Open Senses, an interactive city game focused on the accessibility of the city for all groups of people. Visit five checkpoints located near selected buildings from this year’s program, complete small tasks, solve the crossword puzzle, and claim your reward! The game will help you discover the city space through all senses and try out some of the challenges that people with visual or physical disabilities face on a daily basis. Open Senses is organized by the students of the Arts Management program at Prague University of Economics and Business.

Guided Tours

Because we want to guide children on their journey to exploring the beauty of architecture and the captivating stories of the open buildings, we have also arranged guided tours for children again (taking place on the weekend of May 18–19, 2024). During these tours, children are provided with our Worksheets for Little Architects, which not only spark creativity but also help children learn about terms and topics related to architecture in a fun way. These tours are recommended for children of 5+ years of age, and there is no need to register in advance. Tours for children are in Czech only.

Schedule of Tours for Children

The program may be subject to change. We recommend that you check the announced times before attending the tours.
