Our museum’s educational programme for Kindergarten

 

 

 
 

The museum’s educational programme is aimed at the final classes of the kindergarten (5-6 year-olds). Children under the age of 6 pay no entrance fee (1 Euro).

   

 

On dogs, birds and monsters – animals in Brake Castle

The pupils embark on a discovery trip and find familiar and unknown animals on paintings and furniture. If desired, Brako, the hunting dog (= hand-puppet) of the Renaissance Count Simon VI, will also make an appearance and explain the meaning and history of the animals depicted. After this the pupils make a fabulous creature in the shape of a paper collage, which is then integrated in a game of dice.

Supervision: a member of the museum educational staff

Price: 3 € per child (1 € entrance fee, 2 € for materials)

Duration: 2 hours

   

 

Christmas in the Renaissance

On our tour round the castle we investigate together the contents of a museum case in the shape of a large present. This raises questions about the Christmas tree, St. Nicholas and Christmas angels, Lebkuchen (spicy biscuits) and of course about the Christian Christmas story. After this we either make marzipan or angels.
