Welcome to Trate
Tourists, travelers and the curious
For visits outside the events, please make an appointment in advance. For information on current events, please visit our Facebook page or the events calendar. There is no admission fee, but you can support our work with a voluntary contribution.
For the neighbours and the local people, the Museum of Madness is mostly a place to meet and socialise. Here we meet for reading circles, morning gym sessions, film and music evenings, seedling exchanges and spontaneous gardening and touring meetings. Always welcome!
Students, researchers and professionals
We regularly organise field trips for schools and faculties, and work with experts in mental health, deinstitutionalisation, local communities and other fields of work on joint projects. To get involved, please contact us: email@example.com.
Guided tours are organised for groups and individual visitors to the exhibitions at the Museum of Madness.
