Hydra, Medusa & Co.

Mythical creatures such as snake monsters, winged horses, centaurs or the Medusa still do their mischief in film and fantasy literature today. The superhuman strength, cunning and support of the gods with which Heracles and Perseus were able to defeat the monsters is shown during the guided tour through the museum.

Afterwards the children can make a protective amulet from embossed foil as refrigerator magnet, based on the ancient model.
