The 9th Wonder of the World

A family exhibition about the seven Wonders of the World

There are 7, many countries claim to have an 8th one, but only you can make the 9th. When you can walk around the 7 Wonders of the World, you’ll surely be inspired to create your own. In this exhibition you can do exactly that. We designed an exhibition room that is completely different from the rest of the museum. Children can learn about the Wonders using museum collection, each antique wonder is represented by a life size building block in a vivid color.

But creativity is equally import: children can make a drawing, build with kapla or invent their own Wonder of World and exhibit it in an interactive film, recorded in a 360 degree photo studio, the amazing Wonderbot 9.0.
