Summer Party 2019

Land in sight!
Event as Part of the Cultural Summer Program

The preparations for the opening of the new permanent exhibition and the Children’s Museum are in full swing.
At the summer party, we will give you a preview of some of the new exhibits and invite you on a tour of the huge wooden ark construction site. In the Story Tent, our young visitors will enjoy stories about the ark and its animal passengers. And in the Upcycling Art Lab, children get creative making imaginative animals from recycled materials.

Our team for the interactive map Jewish Places will also have a booth at the party. At the booth, you can try out the map on tablets, learn more about the project, and take part in the Jewish Places quiz.

Those who like it cozier can enjoy the stage program from a deck chair sipping a cool drink. Have a good laugh over “Holiday On Delay”, a one-woman street show by Israeli artist Jay Toor boasting side-splitting slapstick humor à la Charlie Chaplin.

And as always, there are all kinds of culinary delights to be enjoyed, children’s make-up, giant bubbles, exciting hands-on activities and much, much more!

There will also be summery Middle Eastern street food in the garden, courtesy of Refueat and their falafel bike. Kids will love the watermelon sticks at the Kumpirella stand, which will also be serving freshly squeezed pomagranate and orange juice. And of course there will be ice cream, coffee, and cold drinks.
