Puppets in German Museum

  When I was studying in Germany, with the idea of ​​improving my language level and understanding German culture, I began to try to visit some museums, and I gradually discovered that there is a world of difference between German museums and domestic museums. My impression of German museums is no longer a museum in the “traditional sense”. It is not only a place for extracurricular activities for children and teenagers to entertain and educate, but also a good place for adults to relax and entertain.
  Among the various museums in Germany, there are some museums dedicated to the expertise of a well-known or little-known aspect of people’s life. By visiting such museums, one can gain a comprehensive understanding of something in a certain field. For example, large and small natural museums and aquariums all over the country belong to this category. Such museums provide children and teenagers with a good place for extracurricular activities in a variety of exhibition forms, entertaining and entertaining. During the visit, they unknowingly learned a lot of knowledge that is not in books. Particularly impressive are the Chocolate Museum and the Bread Museum.
  The “Chocolate Museum” has been opened since 1993. With its unique architectural shape, it skillfully integrates new and old buildings, and combines museums and chocolate businesses to form a tourist attraction on the Rhine River. It receives more than 600,000 tourists every year and has become a museum in Germany. One of the top ten in the number of tourists. Visitors can get free small pieces of chocolate at the ticket office after buying a ticket. The history of chocolate can be traced back to 3,000 years ago. Cocoa was a magical drink with curative effects in the Mayan period. Introduced to Europe by the Spaniards in 1529, it became a popular exotic hot cocoa drink among European nobles in the 18th century. Later, it gradually developed into various types of cooled chocolate, which is similar to today’s chocolate candy.
  In the museum, visitors can not only learn about the history of chocolate, but also travel through the cocoa forest in the museum’s greenhouse to experience the tropical style of the origin of chocolate. Of course, what attracts tourists the most is the chocolate production line running in the museum, which truly shows the production process of chocolate from raw material processing and refining, pouring and forming to final packaging and labeling. Therefore, many tourists bring their children to visit, and the knowledge about chocolate gradually comes into view: there are stories about celebrities and chocolate, recipes related to chocolate, and chocolate vending machines, etc., so that tourists can fully experience the little chocolate here. of infinite charm.
  There is also a hot chocolate making machine in the shape of a golden cocoa tree in the museum. There is a chocolate warm pool with a diameter of about 1 meter, and a lot of hot chocolate flows out. The service staff directly dip the cookies into the hot chocolate, which is free for tourists to taste. After the visit, the tourists couldn’t hold back their desire to buy. They bought all kinds of exquisite chocolate gift boxes in the chocolate shop attached to the museum, which was a perfect ending to their visit to the “Chocolate Museum”.
  Founded in 1955, the “Bread Museum” is the first bread-themed museum in the world. The museum is a five-story building. The first floor holds various exhibitions related to bread-related content from time to time. The second to third floors display and introduce the origin, history and development of bread in chronological order. At the same time, tourists can also fully understand the types of bread through intuitive and vivid objects and pictures, so that people can’t help but find that there are so many stories behind the ordinary little bread in life. On the fourth floor of the museum, there are literatures and works of art on bread by recent and modern writers and artists, introducing to visitors that with the continuous development of human society and the rapid growth of the world population, the population of the world today is growing. The serious imbalance with resource waste, food waste, and human hunger is thought-provoking. On the top floor is a multi-media screening hall, which broadcasts the whole process of the raw materials of bread-wheat from production to processing and baking into finished bread.
  At the same time, bread culture is also an important part of the exhibition in the museum. After visiting the second to fifth floors of the museum, return to the first floor, where the earth-shaking changes in its advertising, packaging and sales are being exhibited with the progress and changes of people’s lives. The pivotal role that bread plays in human life is also illustrated by the change from workshop-style sales to large-scale factory automation. Therefore, the Bread Museum has also become one of the favorite places for parents and teachers to take children to visit, where children can re-acquaint themselves with the most familiar life partner-bread.
