The visit Inquisitive Hands explores the life of objects from the past, from their creation to their arrival at the museum. To begin the visit, Frédéric Back’s animated film Crac! captures the children’s imagination. They discover the history of an old rocking chair called Crac and they go search for it in the museum. Using pictures from the film, children will understand how people in the past made objects by hand and lived differently from today.
