Family day – Alive

Sunday, 24 September 10.00 – 17.00
Free entrance for families

Can mushrooms talk? And trees feel? They certainly do in our new exhibition “Alive”. Meet the rain fairy and the vegetable spirits, and learn about how other cultures live in union with plants, animals, and other beings.

Puppet theatre: D'Rägefee [The Rain Fairy ] (in German)
