Always wanted to try on real armour? Or dress up like a beautiful maiden? It is possible at Knights and Castles – a new perspective on the Middle Ages. In this exhibition, Museon paints a unique picture of the ‘dark’ ages, which had a great influence on the science, culture, organisation and geography of today’s Europe. “We show that the Middle Ages was a real time, with real people,” begins Willemien Meinders, educational coordinator at Museon. “People often view medieval times as backwards, yet nothing is less true. Many innovations that we use today were invented in the Middle Ages.” On the basis of seven different characters, visitors can explore the Middle Ages through various interactive exhibits and historic objects.
