Emotions Museum for Children and Teens
The museum uses interactive exhibitions, play and fairytales, in order to encourage children and teenagers to discover their emotional world, to learn more about themselves and others. Both children and grown-ups get the chance to understand, examine and confront their emotions through games and exhibits.
The youngsters enjoy their experience, while the grown-ups gain awareness of how to encourage their children to express their emotions.
Every Saturday and Sunday at 13:00 the exhibit space is closed and workshops on various themes take place. These workshops involve the making of myths and fairy tales, workshops related to anger management, and workshops that combine storytelling and music as well as seasonal workshops. In the summer, there is a special program for foreign visitors in English.
