A temporary exhibition at the Children’s Museum that takes you on a journey to an amazing world!
The humankind and bees go way back to ancient times. Those hardworking insects, though studied for centuries, still seem to be mysterious natural wonders. Living in strictly hierarchical groups, they can code information in aerial dances, and ensure the survival of many other species on Earth, humans included. Bees share their valuable produce with us and are an essential element of plant life cycle. Without them we would not have a lot of wonderful fruit and plants. The objects present at the exhibition will help you learn more about the world of bees.
A family visit to our exhibition is also fun and first-hand experience! You’ll try on a bee-keeper’s suit, check what a bee-hive looks and smells like, and start a honey-extractor. A beautifully illustrated book titled “Pszczoły” (“Bees”) from Wydawnictwo Dwie Siostry awaits you at the exhibition too, for the whole family to read. The exhibition offers an opportunity to learn the habits of a bee family and relax in the exhibition’s space.
The “Let’s bee friends” exhibition was created by Zamek Cieszyn and lets you discover information about bees. The exhibition has visited several places in Poland and last spring it arrived to the Children’s Museum, completely rearranging our space. It is very colourful and energetic now.
At the exhibition you learn how people and bees cooperate and how modern architecture copies solutions from honeycombs. You’ll also see an unusual collection of honeys and learn where, for example, Mānuka honey comes from! In the “bees are beautiful” sections you can see that those wonderful insects inspire contemporary designers and – in the part about threats and dangers – you’ll learn what each of us can do to help bees. The exhibition at the Children’s Museum presents also objects from the Museum’s collection connected with apiculture and honey hunting, as well as objects made available by the exhibition’s partners. If you want to own an urban apiary, the exhibition will teach you how to build a bee-hive and take care of these useful insects!
