The Machine Tool Museum is not an ordinary museum in the conventional sense. There are no strict attendants here but mediators who help and guide the Museum’s guests. In our Museum, a visitor becomes not just an observer but a full-fledged participant.
We understand that children are lively beings, and that’s not a problem — the Museum premises take up a whole level of the cluster, we’ve got the space!
Specially for our young guests, we designed the Little Machine Tool and Spindle’s multimedia tour for children. Little Machine Tool and his friend, Spindle the Puppy, are the main characters and narrators of the tour. Together with children, they will go deep into the history of global industry to learn about discoveries, inventions, inventors, factories, and machine tools — and even make a kick scooter using a conveyor belt.
The tour script has an interactive component — it is a real game, a story-driven maze where the viewer’s location can suddenly change following the tour characters who jump from screen to screen.
Along with the children’s multimedia tour, there are creative workshops to construct models from wood block sets and a manual on how to make toy tour characters as a gift for our little guests.
Earlier on, the Museum used to publish a comic by Daria Vardenburg with Little Machine Tool and Spindle being the main characters. You can buy the book at the cluster’s bookstore to relive the Museum adventures at home.
If your child is tired or hungry, you can take a break at the Museum cafe that offers hot beverages, water, and snacks.
