Winter Workshop

Pop-up adventure area for the whole family

An area for families with children from age 3 to spent exciting and relaxing hours at Christmas time.
Right in time for the festive season, the Technisches Museum Wien (Vienna Museum of Science and Technology) opened a new adventure area for the whole family called the “Winter Workshop”, which could be visited during the opening hours until the end of the Christmas holidays. In this area, families with children from age 3 spent an exciting time learning, discovering and trying out things in a playful way and delved into a wide range of different topic areas.

Playing, building, tinkering and creating
The first level of the Winter Workshop allowed children from age 3 to give free rein to their creativity while improving their cognitive and motor skills, craftsmanship and technical knowledge in a playful way. To this end, a wide variety of MATADOR®, LEGO® and BIOBLO® materials was available, encouraging them to build, construct and design things in groups or individually.
Reading, learning, discovering and exploring
Another level provided children, adolescents and adults with the opportunity to delve into a wide range of different topics in a calm and relaxed atmosphere. To this end, the Technisches Museum Wien has selected more than 200 books, offering children aged 310 years an informative and stimulating read and allowing them to discover topic areas such as environment, climate and sustainability, astronomy and outer space as well as natural sciences and technology in an age-appropriate way. In line with the museum’s gender-informed values, there were also numerous books that were designed especially to get girls interested in technology and place a focus on female role models.
