Prague Clam-Gallas palace – a beautiful baroque building by the architect Johann Bernard Fisher z Erlachu was for 33 dyas place where returned the spirit of baroque times.  Visitors could see models, interesting artefacts – for example from Kuks arrived two dwarfs from the sculptor Braun while the children can enjoy the interative ones. „Magnetic baroque village, column from wooden boxes or puzzle of the baroque church interior. Those are the artefacts that will keep children occupied so their parents can look through the exhibition and look at all the artefacts that came from all over the republic,” says Jan Šimr, who has a lot of experience with exhibitions for kids and with a smile adds that parents can also enjoy this interactive part.

Czech Architecture Week and Playful architec hosts thematic exhibition for the fifth time. „As in last years this year will be part of the exhibition works of children from the age of 9 – 10 years old who participated in a year long project art-architectural project. This year we added amateur videos with baroque theme which will be made by children. Videos are incredible lively, colorful and full of pozitive energy. To see what children manage to create is always the most enjoyable part of the project. And thanks to that we all do it,” says Petr Ivanov.
