Experts and artists are invited as guests to some of these workshops.
Faber Castell is the sponsor of their weekend workshops.
Merry-go-round and Playground: Wandering in a big museum might be tiring. Merry-go-round and playground, give the possibility of resting to adults and entartainment to kids.
Discovery Sphere (Planetarium): Planetariums are systems designed for teaching about astronomy. The first modern planetarium was built by the German Zeiss company in 1923. The number of planetariums in the USA soared as a result of the space race in 1960 - 70, and during the same period Japan began to develop this technology further and build planetariums.
Planetariums are places where people can watch the slow movements of the heavenly bodies compressed into a short period of time. Thanks to modern digital technology these displays have become increasingly spectacular.
The program can be seen as well as tickets purchased from Biletix.
Children 8 years and older can visit the submarine.
