19 November - 23 June. This hands-on exhibition at the JuniorMuseum is aimed at children from the ages of four to eight.
Children in Berlin might be amazed to hear that some people eat rice for breakfast, lunch and dinner, yet this is the reality for whole populations around the world.
A photographer and a journalist from Germany visited Laos in south-east Asia to document the work of German charity, Welthungerhilfe, which helps to protect the livelihoods of local families who depend on rice crops.
Visitors to the exhibition can discover what a rice plant looks like, how it grows, which animals live in paddy fields, and the individual roles of family members in growing and harvesting rice. Group rice cooking takes place on Sun 12.00-13.30 and 14.00-15.30, booking required.
