Children have rights! - Children's Museum presents new interactive exhibition

For just a few more months, the Children's Museum will be at home in its premises at the Hauptwache before it moves back to the Historisches Museum complex. As its last stop at the Hauptwache, the Children's Museum will be presenting an interactive exhibition on the topic of "Rights for Children" until 31 October, which was created in close cooperation with the Frankfurt Children's Office. 25 years ago, the UN adopted the 54 articles of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. In 1992, this then came into force in Germany and has since been enshrined in law. Yet few know that children have such rights from birth.

In the exhibition, which is divided into six areas, children are to be introduced to the topic in a playful way. At various interactive stations, they are to learn what their rights are, why they have them and that they apply to all children, whether boy or girl, no matter where they come from or what they believe in. Whether freedom of expression, protection of privacy, the right to education or protection from violence - many important topics are conveyed here in a clear but never dry way. The exhibition not only conveys important content, but is also fun.

It is particularly nice that the young visitors are given the opportunity here to set their own personal priorities. For example, they can think about what they would take to the streets for and can then make their own demonstration signs. There are also voting slips on which visitors can note down the topics they would like to discuss with other children. These discussions then take place in the centre of the exhibition, the children's parliament. The results of the discussion can then be noted down and sent as a letter to the Children's Office. This in turn takes care of the children's wishes, concerns or suggestions by forwarding them to the children's representatives of the respective districts, who then take them into account in their political work. In this way, children can actively participate in the shaping of their city by visiting the exhibition.

In just three and a half months, the Children's Museum and the Children's Office have put together a beautiful and also important exhibition that teaches children about their rights, but also how to deal with them responsibly! "Children have rights!" is aimed at children, young people and families aged 7 and over. The grand opening will take place on Sunday, 02 April at 3 p.m. After that, it can be visited from 04.04. to 31.10. 2017 Tuesday to Sunday from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m., as well as on public holidays and during the Hessian school holidays also on Mondays from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. For more info, visit: <link http: _blank>
