An interactive hands-on exhibition for children from 5 years of age

Until 15.9.2019

Our eyes and ears are constantly collecting sounds, pictures and impressions. But what happens to the information in our brain? How do our senses work? 
The exhibition aims at conveying knowledge about the human being as such. It is created to enable children aged five and above to actively and self-consciously explore the different stations in their own time and depending on each individual’s abilities.

All texts within the exhibition are available in English and German.
