The Gesenkschmiede Hendrichs (Drop Forge) is very suitable for families. Here, children and their parents can experience close-up how a well-known everyday instrument – scissors – are made. New activity-oriented stations have been supplemented with some exciting MINT experiments (Mathematics, Computer Sciences IT, Natural Sciences, Technology) and invite you to enjoy discovering the exhibition independently.
Throughout the whole year, various activity-oriented events offer a varied programme. In addition to the forging workshops and other metal-working options, to the guided tours for children or to the regular family sundays, there are creative workshops during the holidays, the annual children’s museum festival in the springtime or the countless play and experiment options during the summer holiday finals.
The outside premises belonging to the museum with benches, a meadow and a playground are ideal for a picnic or just to linger.
