Tell Me Something About Death
An interactive exhibition about the before and after.
A production by the Alice Museum For Children in conjunction with the Francke Foundations in Halle.
An Unusual Invitation
The topic of death is something of a taboo. We don't like to talk about it, because after all, thinking about the end of our lives or the lives of others is not pleasant. Children, however, tend to pay scant regard to taboo subjects and want to know what happens, when and why. Faced with such questions, we have to accept that death is a part of life and should be discussed, which, in turn, poses interesting questions about our own existence.
The "Tell Me Something About Death" is therefore a slightly unusual exhibition, aimed at everyone aged between 5 and 99. Visitors will be confronted by a topic that often worries us and leaves us unsure of what to say. However, the aim of the exhibition is for everyone to cautiously yet confidently take a step onto 'the other side' and leave with plenty of food for thought, but also a smile on their faces.
Visits by school groups to the exhibition can be made during school hours from Tuesday to Thursday at 9am, 11am, 1pm and 3pm.
Bookings can be made now. Contact: Central Reservation, Tel: 030-53071-333, firstname.lastname@example.org
Opening Hours for families outside of school hours: 12pm to 6pm on Saturday, Sunday and public holidays. The exhibition will also be open from 10am to 6pm on Monday to Friday during the short school holidays. Advance booking not required.
An extensive accompanying programme for school classes and families is available to compliment a visit to the exhibition.
Further education course for adults, teachers and child carers take place regularly in the Alice Museum For Children.
Schools may also wish to borrow one of our museum suitcases, which are full of resources associated with the exhibition, for use in a lesson.
