The MACHmit! Museum for children is situated in an altered church in the neighborhood of Prenzlauer Berg. There are exhibitions where children can discover, try, and learn through play. The exhibition ‘Der weite Horizont – Indianische Kulturen & die Kunst des Kennenlernens’ will be there till June 2019.
