Mission Statement

FRida & freD is a place for all children. With our programmes, we hope to enable children to learn about the world’s diversity and to better understand its complexities. Along with the contents of our museum, we focus on making sure that the young people who visit us develop into confident and responsible citizens who interact carefully with their fellow human beings and their environment. We strive to be a place where children and their parents feel at home, a place that excites their senses and inspires their fantasies, and a place that touches their hearts and encourages their creativity.

The Children’s Museum is a “realisable world” for children, meaning that our top priority is for visitors to comprehend by observing and experiencing first-hand.

With the motto “hands on – minds on”, FRida & freD designs exhibitions which allow a strong emphasis on hands-on contact with displays. Children who visit our exhibitions have the opportunity to explore various worlds with all of their senses and without time constraints.
Help me to do it by myself!
