Into the Ear. A sensory experience

18.11.2018 - 05.05.2019

The construction of the ear, how vertebrates hear and produce sounds, and how the ear has developed over time will amaze both children and adults alike at this special exhibition. Large models of the ear, the auricle and cochlea - as tall as rooms thus and walk-in-able - will make the ear literally comprehensible.

A number of interactive stations on the topics of hearing, balance and sound, for example, encourage children to experiment and play with their ears. In doing so, they learn to understand how very precious hearing and our ears actually are. The more we know, the better we can protect them.

Children find the ouch stations, large models, games, an anechoic chamber, walk-in models of auricles or oversized semi-circular canals particularly exciting and they are thus encouraged to be more curious. This special exhibition conveys knowledge of the ear in a fun, creative and unforgettable way.
