Participate in an interactive treasure hunt filled with riddles and clues to learn about the accomplishments of the heroic figures portrayed in the exhibition.

  • classify the heroes by their historical time periods and birth countries,
  • choose the hero that fits the description of your clues, and
  • tell your hero’s story.

Have fun!
