«Art detectives» is a puzzle booklet for children that the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst creates for each new exhibition. Take up the challenge to show what a good imagination you have and what a good explorer and detective you are. You'll be given mysterious material samples to identify and draw, and will create your own mini-detective stories. You'll also find out more about the artists and their artworks at the exhibition.

Joining in is child's play!

You will of course need the right art detective equipment for your investigations – and you can get a rucksack with all you need plus the puzzle booklet free of charge at the ticket desk. That's where you can also collect the answers and a small reward at the end.

  • Free of charge activity
  • Ideal age range: 8 to 12 years (younger kids too, with some help from the grown-ups)
  • Entry – adults: CHF 12 / concessions: CHF 8
  • Free entry to the museum for children and young people up to the age of 16
