Historical Playground

This historical playground combines play and learning, for large and for small

Spinning tops, bowls, skittles, marbles, running and jumping! Try your hand at 15 types of games dating back to the 1500s. Each station is equipped with instructions and information about the message context. Here you can choose to test your strength in a tug of war, try to knock each other from a log with pillows or compete in an older variation of curling. Both skittles and marbles used to be played in Tycho Brahe’s botanical gardens on Ven. Along with science, it was the place for philosophy, poetry and socialising.

The historical playground was built with the help of grants from the EU Goal2 Islands, Region Skåne, The Future Culture Foundation, LSR and Landskrona Home Corp. The playground is developed in collaboration with Gerlev Sports Academy.
