Modern preschoolers easily cope with electronic gadgets, include cartoons, games, and parents call. But all this raid of modernity flies, just as children end up on the lawn among the squat village houses. To see such a metamorphosis, visit the kids in the ethnographic museum Düppel. Here, instead of urban high-rise buildings, there are huts in which people lived several centuries ago. In Berlin's Zehlendorf district, where the museum is located, quietly and calmly, as in a suburb. Here in 1968 found the remains of an ancient settlement. Scientists estimate that the village was built about 800 years ago. On the ancient foundations restored buildings, and the village-museum Duppel opened to visitors. One can not help wondering how people ingeniously treated with natural materials. Houses were built of wood, covered with straw, clay was taken to build a barn, a hearth was laid out of stone, and beehives were woven from bark. Outbuildings, tools, dishes, clothes talk about heavy peasant labor and simple life. Here you can find out how they plowed up the ground, grew and sting rye, how they ground grain and baked bread, what plants grew in gardens and gardens, how they spun the thread and wove the canvas. And so that the life of the village did not seem bleak, a special playground was created for children. A pole, a wire hook, a ring - that's a toy: throw the ring on the hook, so that it can fly, and get hooked, and it doesn't fall from the blow. In another game, the main subject is walnuts: they need to be fired at a distance. And the opportunity to look everywhere and touch everything turns into a game, the child gladly turns the millstone handle or tries to get a bucket of water from the well. The museum also has an apiary and a mini-farm, and the animals on it are exactly what the peasants bred hundreds of years ago. It is not known whether children will find a difference between modern and medieval goats, sheep and pigs, but nobody will care to stroke a lamb or touch a pink piglet. Here you can learn about crafts: if any child at least theoretically knows who the blacksmith is, he will hear about cooper for the first time. Craftsmen demonstrate their skills, and during fairs you can buy forged and pottery products, felted and knitted sheep wool items, fabrics, baskets. On Sundays in Düppel all guests are treated to dishes prepared according to old recipes: thick lentil soup, millet cereal, bread, buns, compote. But if you wish, you can always taste familiar foods and drinks in the cafe at the museum.
