These 360-degree pictures were taken during the virtual reality project through the Black Forest. The Stadtmuseum Pforzheim is an interesting way to tell children and parents about the turbulent history of Pforzheim. The historical monument of the town museum includes the old parish church, the old school house, the vicarage, a lapidarium, several barns and an idyllic herb garden. Here there are plenty for children and parents to discover and experience.
Goldsmiths and rafters
On the ground floor of the Old School House of the City Museum, the families will be introduced to the traditional crafts in Pforzheim. Children and parents can be taken away in earlier times in fully preserved watchmaking and goldsmithing workshops. On the basis of models and Schautafeln they get an insight into the professions of the Gerber and Flößer. The families visit shoemaker, saddlery and brushwork workshops.
Citizens of the city
On the upper floor of the Stadtmuseum Pforzheim, children and parents in the department "living in town and country" admire facilities of citizens 'and farms' apartments.
In the parish church the most important events of the city history from the 12th to the 20th century are shown to the families. E.g. a classroom of a Latin school of the fifteenth century, sought by Melanchton and Reuchlin. The princely wedding of Margrave Charles I with Catherine of Austria in 1447 is impressive for children and parents. Topics such as plague and city fires are also presented.
Destruction in the Second World War
The upper floor of the Stadtmuseum Pforzheim is devoted to the destruction of the city in 1945. Here is also a cinema furnished, where the families watch films about the city history.
