Kids can unlock the secrets of the Transport Museum in their own personal way: solving puzzles, experimenting and playing games (both digital and otherwise) at the so-called mouse stations, which can be found in all the permanent exhibitions. Here they can unravel the mysteries of transport by road, railway, water and air.
Mouse stations –
the Children’s Route
The Transport Museum is not only home to huge locomotives, elegant vintage cars, and daredevil aircraft, it’s also home to our beloved Museum Mouse, Flitzi. Wherever Flitzi pops up, you can be sure that there’s something there for children to discover and enjoy.
Children aged between 3 and 6 can locate our little mouse stations in all the permanent exhibitions, where they will have to use all their senses to master the tasks and solve the puzzles. Can they put the gear wheels in the right places to make the gears go? Is that an aircraft or a bat they can feel? What’s that sound? A car honking, or maybe a tram?
