Programs suitable for children from grades 1 to 4

Each Theme Day consists of 4 activities that take place in a study room over the course of 90 minutes and a theme-based exhibit trail in the vicinity of the various installations at Muzeiko (with a duration of 60 minutes).

Since December a new theme workshop - "SNOWFLAKES" is being offered. Hedgehog, star, needle, pillar and plate, believe it or not, but these are shapes of ... snowflakes. Is this winter magic or applied science? Come to Muzeiko and find out!
• Show at the planetarium with a duration of 30 minutes and a theme-based exhibit trail around the installations at Muzeiko, over the course of 90 minutes.
