In Hildesheim, the secret cultural capital of Lower Saxony, such UNESCO World Cultural Heritage sites as the Cathedral and the 1000-year-old St. Michael’s Church, the historical market square and the picturesque half-timbered houses in the narrow streets are just waiting to be discovered.

Roemer and Pelizaeus Museum
The Creation of the World - Creation Myths from Ancient Egypt
 
What was there before creation? How did time and space come to be and who created them? This and other questions on the creation and continuation of our world are asked by the last great creation myth of the Old Egyptians: the famous “Book of the Faiyum”.

From 20 Sept. 2014 to 19 Jan. 2015, the Roemer and Pelizaeus Museum will be presenting this amazing papyrus – accompanied by a number of internationally loaned exhibits that show the unusual illustrations in three-dimensional form – in a special exhibition entitled “The Creation of the World – Creation Myths from Ancient Egypt”. It communicates a surprising and sometimes very modern picture of this ancient culture that goes far above and beyond the pyramids, pharaohs and mummies. In the exhibition, visitors can take a journey through the Ancient Egyptian universe.

Civic Museum in the Butchers’ Guildhall
The Magic Flute – Mozart for Children (6 Sept. 2013 to 1 June 2014)

Is there anyone who has never heard of the Magic Flute? And who is there who doesn’t know who the characters in the opera are: Papageno, the bird catcher, the Queen of the Night, Sarastro, the Sun King, and Prince Tamino and the beautiful Pamina?

Magnificent illustrations depict the scenes of the Magic Flute. Stage settings, music instruments and samples of the music and singing transport you into the world of the opera. A cinema section and games encourage visitors to experience and explore. The exhibition also illuminates the background story of the opera and takes you on a journey back into Mozart’s life and times.

The fairy-tale plot transports the entire family into a world of fantasy with magical music instruments and dancing animals.
