The animators bring life to the exhibition “Wings to grow-up”, wings to leave the nest. During the exhibition, children are invited to fly from one room to another to discover their own talents, their superpowers, the richness of friendship, different cultures and small worlds where it is nice to live in. The child needs a frame in order to escape from it and fly on his own wings. The exhibition is divided into 6 chapters: The hall: Come aboard the exhibition by activating every mechanism of the impressive flying machine: cycle and fly away! My superpowers: facing a new or difficult situation, the child discovers his resources and talents in order to deal with it. Friendship: friendship is a beautiful adventure, even though it`s not always easy. However, it helps to grow up. Cultures: The discovery of other cultures and their richness helps children to better understand the world around them. They create their own world where it is nice to live in together. Everyone creative! Being creative is all about looking for solutions. Let children’s ideas flourish and give them the possibility to escape from the frame. My secret garden: In order to grow up and feel good with himself and others, the child needs his own secret garden.

Picknick : At noon, the children gather to the cafeteria for their lunch break.

Additional information : The Museum took the following challenge: to give children, through participatory and playful exhibitions, the opportunity to get to know themselves better and to know others better.
This work is, in the opinion of many psychologists and child psychiatrists, essential in the emotional development of a child. It helps him to feel more self-confident and, as a result, to become an adult who is tolerant and open to others.
The work of the Children's Museum is therefore preventive and educational. In addition, the Museum encourages adults to enjoy a special time with children.
The activity can be integrated into all types of courses as it has a wide range of topics such as the different cultures, the discovery of nature, the five senses, family and philosophy. Children also have the opportunity to explore creative workshops for oral and physical expression such as theatre and storytelling.
