Located on the ground floor of Fridericianum, RURUKIDS is a safe space designed especially for children, with many fun and creative activities that encourage children to explore arts and culture. It is a place for sharing knowledge, meeting new friends, playing, relaxing, and co-creating.

RURUKIDS is an open-door space for all children to enjoy the playing area, special projects, library room, and screenings during the opening hours from 10 am until 8 pm. For the programming, the RURKIDS team collaborates closely with documenta fifteen artists and creative people from Kassel, inviting children to learn by playing, sharing, and exploring through diverse workshops and performances. All programming and available facilities offer children to learn about different cultures worldwide by creating moments for sharing and discovering.
