The Crazy Crooked House

Daniel Libeskind for Children

Why are the walls here at a slant, why are the windows slits, why does the staircase lead to nowhere, which direction do balls roll in the underground Axes, why are there no flowers blossoming in the garden?

The Jewish Museum's young visitors receive a playful introduction tailored to their respective age group to the architecture of Daniel Libeskind.

Afterwards building blocks, cardboard, paper, and other handicraft materials are available for the children to make their very own crazy fantasy house.
