Ancient Fables

Short animal stories of cunning and treachery, of wisdom and stupidity as a mirror of various everyday experiences had already arisen in antiquity and have, to date, been preserved in fables and some proverbs.

The tour of the museum offers an insight into children’s clothing and toys in the ancient Greece.  Ancient animal figures will be observed and fitting fables will be read aloud.
Subsequently the children will have time to capture the heard figuratively, optionally with the help of painting templates or designed freely.
