The exhibits have been developed since 1993 with all hosting museums. Each of them provided themes, help and budget to realize ideas. A important partner was the musikmesse Frankfurt, where from 2001 imtil 2016 the MMM was organizing a 2000 sqm area for school and kindergarden groups. Up to 500 kids visited the exhibition four times adding to 2000 visitors a day. It was a great chance to prototype and test exhibits. A big thank you to all partners. Without them it would not have been possible to do the work.
