Eyes and ears

Open your eyes and prick up your ears! Here, we test our hearing and vision. Our senses connect us with the outside world and we wouldn’t want to do without them. For years, various aids have been in use to help.

  • Adults, Young people

First, let’s look a little closer. Do you still have 20/20 vision, or would you like to try on a pair of our historic glasses? Next, examine your eyes with an ophthalmoscope. Is the back of your eye healthy or do you have a disease that could threaten your eyesight? Experience how people with certain conditions see the world.

Finally, let‘s listen carefully. Test out whether your hearing is better with a historic ear trumpet. Today’s hearing aids and cochlear implants, on the other hand, are small masterpieces.

When will this event take place?

Our programme changes daily and includes guided tours, demonstrations, science shows and hands-on activities for individual visitors and small groups of up to five people. All programme events are held in German. They begin either directly where the activity is set to take place or at a guided-tour meeting point in the relevant exhibition.
