This educational design space, a former industrial workshop, is marked by kaleidoscopic patterns, natural materials and contrasting sleek blackened glass surfaces. Street-inspired materials such as simple plywood and sterling board give the space an edgy, playful and welcoming feel. The Kids Museum of Glass is the newest addition to the ever-growing G+ Park, one of Shanghai’s trendsetting creative hubs.
The exhibition is built up as a ‘glass city’, consisting of different units that are themed with easy to grasp city analogies, such as ‘The Beach’, ‘The Circus’ and ‘The Factory’. Children are confronted with snack-sized information while playing with different glass-themed installations. The museum experience is intuition-based and invites children to explore the topic of glass independently.
Easy to use multi-media installations tempt children to touch and play: simple actions and gestures allow them to discover for example how lightning can create glass, how a glass prism works or what smart glass is. In between playing and learning, children can relax and watch a film in the integrated Fire Theater or Up-Cycling Theater. Creative kids can practice their sketching skills by drawing an art piece on the spot in one of the ‘Draw Me’ installations.
