- A party for Emma and Miel: a visit for the entire family to the Volkskunde Museum (Folklore)
- Feel the past under your feet
- 'Heart and sole’ and ‘Length of Cloth’
Explore with your children the fascinating collection of the Volkskundemuseum (Folklore). Through a series of fun 'do'-tasks, the kids can earn money that can be used to give Emma and Miel a really fantastic marriage party. At the same time, they will learn about the way people lived and worked in the past. Perhaps they will see something that grandma still has at home? Or maybe granddad still knows how some of those funny-looking machines work? The task-pack is available free of charge at the entrance desk. Available in Dutch and French.
What’s stewing in the cooking pots of a Merovingian mother? Does she store the leftovers in Tupperware? The Bruggemuseum – Archaeology brings prehistory, Roman times, the early, high and late Middle Ages and more modern times face to face with the present. Under the motto “Feel the past under your feet” you receive the unique opportunity, via the various “do” and “search” features, to discover all the elements of daily life in the city of Bruges. You’re invited to visit a mix of archaeological finds, replicas and reconstructions, all in an educational, but playful manner. An activity cell punctuates each time period. In these cells, you, yourself, search for answers to archaeological riddles. The children receive a list of questions and if they find enough answers, they earn the coveted diploma of an ‘archaeologist’ from the academy of ‘Pol de Mol’ (Paul the Mole).
Two multimedia projects with touch screen. ‘Heart and sole’ covers the history of the traditional clogs, orthopaedic shoes and modern-day sneakers. Shopping and folk tales around this theme also come into play. ‘Length of Cloth’ tells more over the history of the textile trade in the Bruges region, contemporary fashion designers and milliners, shopping, fashion and lifestyle.
