We spent a nice morning exploring this little museum in the heart of Frankfurt. The current theme is 'Collections'. After being given a box with English translations of much of the text around the museum, we started by looking at collections of many different things made by children: erasers, calendar cards, etc. We then looked through a Victorian-style curiosity cabinet, before compiling our own collection electronically and having it displayed on a huge wall near the entrance.
The crafts then started: we could cut our objects out from a pre-printed sheet (or choose from a box of pre-cut pictures), decide how to arrange them, and stick them onto a card. Most objects were available to see, and many could also be handled, which helped to bring them to life. Our children really enjoyed using real typewriters and seeing how pressing keys printed the letters onto cards. Everything was well arranged and explained.
After completing our look around the museum, we then spent a further 15 minutes in the play area, which kept the children happy exploring and hiding.
Overall, a great way of keeping young children (probably in the range 4 - 10) happy for an hour or two.
