A soundscape for the whole family

The stories can be heard in three different ‘sections’, aimed at different age groups and depending on how much time you have for your visit to the Museum

Altogether, there are 8 ‘listening-stations’ and you don’t have to listen to all of the stories in one go. Each of the stories can also stand alone, so you can go back and hear the rest of the content another day if needs be.
