School children visit museum

“And here is the famous fortepiano by Walter … “

These were the words that the 3rd grade school children of the Schenkenfelden elementary school heard when they entered the Biedermeier room. The young guests who visited the museum together with their teacher, Christine Hehenberger, and her assistant, Birgit Weigel, were surprisingly well informed which became apparent during the tour. In her typical and unique way, Greti Ecker fascinated the large group with her narratives. The children discovered yet unfamiliar objects, asked numerous questions and had a lot of fun.

After that, the visitors proceeded into the Biedermeier room where they could listen to various musical pieces beside gaining valuable information about the fortepiano like the year before. Some children had brought their own instruments and together they sang and performed music. At the end, the young artists received great applause from their colleagues. The Gerstlhaus team was glad, that they were again visited by children of the elementary school and hopes, that last years premiere will turn into a recurring hightlight.
