In the Children’s Book Museum (Kinderboekenmuseum), children can have loads of fun while learning about Dutch children’s literature. They will discover how stories can be both enriching and inspirational.
The museum will have two permanent interactive expositions: ‘Kikker’ (Frog) for pre-school children and ‘Papiria’ for kids between the ages of 7 and 13 years. The expositions are especially fun for children who can speak Dutch.
In Papiria children can experience the magic of word and image. They will learn all about the process of creating a story through language and illustration. During their voyage of discovery through Papiria the children create their own digital story figure and then write a story, draw a picture, compose a poem or let their imagination go in the accompanying workshop.
The interactive exposition is an experience in itself. The use of multimedia and various art disciplines bring the classic medium of the book into today’s day and age. The exposition has 12 interactive games, 18 short audiovisual productions about making a story, 30 design stations where children can create their own story figure, 111 original illustrations by 68 different illustrators, more than 150 sound fragments and some 50,000 books on the shelves.
Kikker and his friends will get a permanent home in the Children’s Book Museum. The exposition is to get kids aged 3 to 6 years to play and use their imagination. Well-known Kikker books are represented and teach children about emotions such as love, fear and happiness. They’ll enter the world of Kikker and set off on a special adventure.
