Monday, June 10th, 2013 the railroad is back

The railroad is not only a means of transportation, but also a popular toy, already since 150 years. This is reason enough for the Salzburg toy museum to dedicate a special exhibition to the beloved toy.

Displayed are toys and models from 3 generations, from the big wooden train, the steam train or the electronic train. As a special highlight the traffic manager of Salzburg, Gunter Mackinger, provided historic Salzburg trains from his own private collection.

Therefore the special exhibition is a highlight not only for children but for families and people interested in trains!

Monday, May 27th, 2013 Special exhibition at the Haus der Natur

The Haus der Natur, a museum for technic and nature is always a good recommendation for a family excursion. Besides the current exhibitions there are always interesting temporary exhibitions, like to one about the topic bionic.

Like the title ‘nature inspires technology’ already suggests the exhibition shows how humans can learn from animals and nature concerning technical issues. There are many questions that will be answered, like: What have a thighbone and the Eiffel Tower in common? And what has the aircraft industry learnt from studying the wings of birds? By the way, the gecko was used as an example to develop especially adhesive sticky tape.

We wish you fun discovering and exploring- because people never stop learning!
