Winterthur Natural History Museum

Learning by touching: In the Winterthur Natural History Museum, young scientists are allowed to touch the animals. Like little badgers they can sniff around in an oversized badger's burrow and label and display their finds from forest and meadow in the drawer-museum. They will be accompanied by the popular doll Kerala, which is also ideal for a birthday party. In a playful manner, a museum teacher guides the children through the various themes.
