Hansel and Gretel – a play exhibiton

This year’s play exhibition at Kulturen in Lund is based on the classic tale Hansel and Gretel, written by the Brothers Grimm in the early 1800s.

As you enter the exhibition you step into a forest where you find Hansel and Gretel’s modest cottage and the witch’s ominously alluring gingerbread house.

Many different animals inhabit the forest, and there’s even a bear’s den to sit down in and read the story about Hansel and Gretel in different languages.

The exhibition holds many details waiting to be discovered. Children are encouraged to, for instance, find all the animals of the forest or make a soup and set the table in Hansel and Gretels home.

The exhibition is suitable for children of 3-8 years.
