Into the ear

Until Sat, 21/03/2020
Kulturama - Museum of Man

In the temporary exhibition «Into the ear» visitors travel along various stations from the outer ear through the auditory canal into the inner ear and get to know the organ from the inside. How do vertebrates hear? How do they produce sounds? And how has the ear developed over time?

This interactive family exhibition addresses the senses of adults and children alike to learn about hearing, balance and sound. The topics can be explored by solving puzzles, playing, experimenting and with the help of informative touchable exhibition pieces.

Visitorswill experience that the ear is not only indispensable for hearing, but also plays an important role in walking upright and keeping our balance. The exhibition shows the highly complex mechanism inside the ear and what happens if this mechanism is thrown out of joint.
