The Young Castle

The Children’s Museum of the Württemberg State Museum

 

The ‘Young Castle’ is a meeting place for children and families, a place for learning and for having fun. A place that stands up for children’s needs, rights and interests. A place that reflects the living environment of our diverse society.

 

‘Das Junge Schloss’ – literally, ‘The Young Castle’ – opened its doors in 2010 as the region’s first exhibition venue designed especially for children. It is part of the Württemberg State Museum, one of Germany’s largest museums of cultural history with exhibits from the Stone Age to the present day. The ‘Junge Schloss’ makes history and culture accessible and understandable for children. The children’s museum offers young visitors a cognitive, sensory and motor skills. experience that is adaptable to their individual strengths and needs. Children can acquire historical, cultural and societal knowledge not only through looking at objects and reading the explanations, but also by touching, smelling, moving, and – last but not least – by creating things with their own hands. Young visitors are encouraged to become aware of their own roots and, as a long-term goal, to develop a sense of their own identity.

The Württemberg State Museum

The Württemberg State Museum in Stuttgart’s ‘Altes Schloss’ (Old Castle) documents the fascinating history of our state from the stone age until today. The museum’s collections cover archaeology, art history and cultural history, taking visitors through Württemberg’s past. Besides the crown jewels of the Württemberg kingdom, the museum’s highlights include some of humankind’s oldest art objects, such as a delicate 35,000-year-old lion’s head carved out of mammoth ivory and the extraordinary grave furnishings of the Hochdorf Celtic prince.

Mission

We present science and technology as something to be seen and experienced and illustrate its cultural significance by exhibiting unique masterpieces. We inspire people to play an active role in shaping the future.  The Deutsches Museum with its branch museums is an outstanding place for communicating scientific and technical knowledge and for a constructive dialogue between science and society. Established in 1903, it is among the world’s oldest museums of science and technology and, with total exhibition space of 66,000 square m², one of the largest. Its unique collection of original exhibits makes Deutsches Museum a leading international venue for celebrating science and technology as a cultural endeavour. As a major German research museum of national significance, it is supported by the state of Bavaria, the federal government and the German states and is a member of the Leibniz Association. The Deutsches Museum fulfils a national mission for collecting and preserving historically significant objects from the world of science and technology and conducts research in the history of those fields and the related social transformations. With its exhibitions and accompanying events and activities, it bridges the gap between research and education and thus helps to foster innovation in our society. The entertaining communication of basic ideas of science and technology is geared to the target groups and provides an overview of historical developments while offering insights into the latest research. It allows people of all ages to gain an understanding of the research process while presenting scientific and technological topics and their impact on our lives in an accessible way. The Deutsches Museum addresses controversial issues and acts as a venue where people can exchange ideas, form their own opinions, and participate in the world of science and technology. In this way it offers orientation in an increasingly complex world in which science and technology place a decisive role and enables museum visitors to reach informed decisions and act as informed citizens in political decision-making processes.

Founded by Henri Langlois in 1936, La Cinémathèque française is cinema’s living memory. Its remarkable international holding comprises 40,000 films, some of them extremely rare, from the birth of cinema up to the present. La Cinémathèque also has collections of movie equipment, costumes, models, sets, posters, photographs, manuscrits, books and drawings…

In 2005, La Cinémathèque française moved to new premises designed by Frank O. Gehry at 51 Rue de Bercy in Paris. There it has blossomed as a living centre for the cinema ethos, in a rapidly developing neighbourhood offering a broad public a fresh, varied cultural choice.

La Cinémathèque française is a non-profit association subsidized by the French Ministry of Culture and Communication via the CNC(National Centre of Cinematography). La Cinémathèque française organises two major temporary exhibitions every year. They highlight the aesthetic and technical specificity of the cinema, as well as its complex and ever fascinating connections with other art forms – such as painting, drawing, design, photography and video. Their curators are chosen for their scientific abilities and their creativity. They reinvent the 600m² space in collaboration with talented set designers such as Nathalie Crinière, Pascal Rodriguez or Scenografia Agency. All contributors work with the exciting ambition to find new ways to show cinema as a subject (screened, broadcast, edited, and sometimes merely fantasised or transformed).

La Cinémathèque française presents alternately patrimonial exhibitions (German Expressionist Cinema, Magical Lanterns) and contemporary exhibitions (Gus Van Sant, Chris Marker, Jacques Demy) displaying mainly rare pieces coming from its rich archive funds, institutional partners or private collections. Film and photographic works created specially for the exhibitions and produced by La Cinémathèque complete the picture.

These temporary exhibitions are accompanied with numerous activities, such as conferences, readings, panels, workshops, guided tours, development of online content and co-publication of prestigious catalogues (with Gallimard, La Martinière, Skira, Flammarion, Steidl).

In 2021, La Cinémathèqude française reopens its museum. It evolves and changes entirely. From now on, your visit is in the company of the most famous director in history: Georges Méliès. This genius accompanies visitors on a fanatstic journey, a journey through time, to trace the history of cinema.


Low-cost exhibitions on environmental and sustainability themes

Curating Tomorrow develops affordable exhibitions on environmental and sustainability topics. The first of these, ‘Nature and Climate Change’, is based around specially commissioned illustrations of animals and plants affected by climate change in different ways, accompanied by educational information on the great diversity of ways that climate change impacts upon nature. This approach to touring exhibitions shows that touring can be low carbon, and tailored to local circumstances. The exhibition has been specially developed to be suitable for museums, aquaria, schools, zoos and other educational settings, drawing on Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship Education.

Curating Tomorrow works to connect people with policy agendas – including the Paris Climate Agreement, Convention on Biological Diversity and SDGs – in inspiring and enjoyable ways, promoting people’s active participation in imagining and creating the future we want.

The Istanbul Jazari Museum (IJM), was founded in 2018, inspired by the magnificent contribution of the greatest engineer of The Middle Ages, one of the world’s most eminent minds. IJM, which designs activities to mobilize scientific curiosity and artistic creativity simultaneously, acts with an understanding that the best way to preserve the world cultural heritage and pass it down to future generations is how this treasure is valued. The exhibitions and training programs of the Istanbul Jazari Museum aspire to introduce and attract the attention of visitors from all walks of life and echelons to world culture heritage. In this way, the aim is to encourage visitors to get to know the world better by becoming conscious and productive individuals in the field of history, science, art and culture. The IJM believes that in Turkey, one of the main geographies in which world culture thrives, if different kinds of physical and intellectual products that have been a witness to humanity’s adventure throughout tens of thousands of years are looked at more closely in an interactive way, new ideas can be sparked to inspire the future of humanity. With its own exhibition collections along with international exhibitions, training programs and cultural activities, the IJM offers a contemporary museum atmosphere.
