The exhibition tells a story about the Ghost of the Museum. The Ghost requests children to learn about technology via play, mysteries, hands-on tasks and inventing.
The exhibition includes different areas with different viewpoints into technology: essence of technology, stages of invention, values and relevance of technology, collaboration, Finnish inventions and changes that have taken place in technology in the long run. As a culmination of the museum tour children can switch on The Ghost’s Invention Device by using the new skills they have learned in the exhibition.
The Ghost and the Invention Device is an interactive and child-centered learning environment that includes versatile learning methods. The environment together with museum objects support children’s creative museum engagement and encourages them to observe, handle and understand technology as a part of their everyday life.
