Express Train to Vehicle Play -KULPS! visit

The Finnish Toy Museum - Näyttelykeskus WeeGee, Ahertajantie 5

On this visit to the Toy Museum we study the past and present of travel and vehicles from many different points of view. The visit includes the guided tour Express Train to Vehicle Play and the workshop Vehicle Laboratory.

The Express train to Vehicle Play is filled with the rush of speed and the joy of travelling! We roam in the special exhibition Vehicle Play and acquaint ourselves with children’s traffic toys and play. During the tour we will discuss the history of traffic, traffic education, and the environmental effects of traffic.
Length c. 45 minutes.

In the workshop Vehicle Laboratory the pupils get to plan and build their own vehicles. In the workshop we study the development and design of traffic and vehicles, and consider the ecological aspects and future of different vehicles. The pupils get to use different blocks and hot glue to build vehicles according to their own tastes and preferences. The pupils will also get to think through the purposes and functions of their vehicles.
Length c. 45 minutes.

Groups of over 15 children are divided in two, so that one half is on the tour while the other works in the workshop, and then they switch.
Length c. 90 minutes.
