Treasure Hunt with Schmuckie the Pearl Pig
Guide to the Schmuckmuseum Pforzheim
The Jewellery Museum, with its collection that is unique in the world, is a place of wonder and learning. The treasure hunt with Schmucki provides many journeys of discovery for the whole family, accompanied by the pearl pig Schmucki who helps with her sensitive nose. Divided by thematic islands and stages, children learn in a playful way about the meaning of jewellery both in the past and still today as a magical protector, status symbol or in relation to other people. They thereby gain insight into the cultural life of various eras in different countries. The reading of the book doesn’t necessitate a visit to the museum, even at home one can go on a wonderful journey of discovery. This children’s museum guide is intended as a book that grows alongside the children, as it offers the reader stories and riddles with graded levels of difficulty to captivate them. These can be solved either alone or with the help of adults, depending on their age. They learn new concepts, discover worlds of symbols, can learn about working in a museum or can be inspired creatively. This museum guide is suitable as a picture book for reading out loud and it encourages interaction between children and adults with its fascinating questions. The treasure hunt also encourages independent explorations suitable for different age groups. The topic of jewellery is accompanied by craft projects and furthermore a timeline, a glossary and a red magnifying glass for decoding secret clues. Text in German.
