FROM CINNAMON TO STAR
Heavenly fragrances from all corners of the world
December 11, 2016, 10.45 a.m. - 12.00 noon

Viewing the same exhibition but seeing things differently and then talking with each other about the experience is the whole point of the family tandem tours. Children and adults set off on separate guided tours through the exhibition. While the adults spend longer in the exhibition, the children visit a workshop where they make things that reflect themes of the exhibition, in this case From Cinnamon to Star. Heavenly Fragrances from All Corners of the World.

With Elisabeth Wilhelm and Regina Mathez

For kids of 6 an older

All the pastries we enjoy during the Christmas season contain special ingredients and spices, adding to the typical Christmas mood. But where do these spices actually come from? What stories have they to tell and how do they get to us?

Big doesn’t always mean the same thing. The guided tour through the exhibition BIG tells you more about the cultural dimensions of bigness, power and status being two good examples. But how is size defined and measured? What’s so impressive about big things?
