Old Homestead is an interactive theatre installation which invites visitors of ages to an old homestead full of old tools once used by craftsmen and “stations” where families can stop and play games. You will also see an old wash-house, a smithy where horse shoes are made, an old soap-works and even a privy. Particularly noteworthy are the installations for practising old-time activities, such as cutting and pickling cabbage, making pots, threshing and grinding grain. The young will be able to participate in old sports and games, such as shooting with a catapult, fights with bags, playing music with saws, riding on a rocking horse, playing on old swings an see-saws, in an old bowling alley and even in a wooden gym.
