The exhibition opens up its theme – wool – to visitors of all ages. They have the opportunity to encounter and interact with the wool on a playful, sensual, intellectual or nostalgic level. There are spaces of encounter in every room, which are designed to encourage shared, active experience and exchange between generations. At the same time, visitors can deepen their knowledge of various related topics. These include the life of the shepherd and relationships with the animals; the production of wool; the transformation of raw wool into yarn; and the process of knitting, from stitches all the way up to the finished product. The visitor can try out everything — either with or without guidance.
In addition to a sculpture of a sheep that visitors can climb, highlights include a shepherd’s clothing and gear, a clothing rail that tells stories, and a flying carpet.
