About us


UNIKATUM Children's Museum was founded in 2010 by Annegret Hänsel and the team from the UNIKATUM Exhibition Agency. It hosts interactive exhibitions which change in time for the new school year for both children and adults. It aims to create walk-in pictures on topics of social interest which can be explored by visitors. Every year it welcomes about 24,000 visitors.

UNIKATUM is a private initiative which is largely run by volunteers and a big thank-you goes out to all those who help us and support us in a variety of ways! In 2014, UNIKATUM won first prize in the City of Leipzigs Family-Friendly Awards. And it was also the proud recipient of the 2012/13 Saxon Sociocultural Activity Prize from the Saxon Arts Foundation.

Annegret Hänsel is a physics graduate and has been a freelance exhibition planner for more than 15 years. She has two sons at primary school.
