Hanau is home to the first Brothers Grimm hands-on museum in Germany. The museum is made by and for children: together with the Hanau Children's and Youth Office, the municipal museums have set up their own children's committee for GrimmsMärchenReich. The committee has carefully examined the conception and design of the hands-on museum, advised the makers during its creation and actively contributed to the design of the exhibition from start to finish. During their visit, children and adults go on an interactive and multimedia adventure through seven fairytale worlds and even become fairytale characters themselves. In the process, they walk through the Whispering Hallway, explore fairytale landscapes in costumes in the Room of Transformation, enter the Reading Realm with books, listening stations and sign films, and learn exciting stories from the childhood and lives of the brothers Jacob, Wilhelm and Ludwig Emil Grimm.
