heart and belly button

o: 2,5+ (: 45’

My body is my home! You will enter the magical world of the human body and wonder how tiny we were and how much we have grown. Maybe you know where the food we eat goes? What is invisible around us that smells so good? What moves my body, why can I run, jump, and roll? I am constantly accompanied by the pleasant sound of du-dum, du-dum, du-dum. You know what that is? And how very comfortable it is for me to be caress? Who is telling all these stories in my head? Join the doctors Dr. Scrab and Dr. Skin on a journey inside the human body. Put on your medical plugs and slippers and become their assistants.

Children and of course adults often wonder about the processes in their bodies. Experiential show Heart and Belly Button combined into an interactive exhibition and a learning path will reveal the mysterious and entertaining world of the organs and their functions.

The show is suitable for children from 2,5 years of age and lasts 45 minutes.
