KIBALA - Childrens area of the DB Museum

© DB Museum Nürnberg

Key facts:

  • KIBALA is an area devoted entirely to children. Children can not only play in the big 1.000m2 hall, but also learn about all things rail-related. While playing, children find out how steam, electric and diesel locomotives work when they take the controls of a travel simulator and get the chance to shovel coal.

Children can get on and off at the stations along the way, just like they were travelling on a real train. Children can play and help run things, dress up and perform the duties of a train attendant. In one section, they get to drive a train.

Kids always love puzzles, stories, drawing and painting, so activity sheets are available at each station along the route. At the end of their visit, children can put all of their pages together to make a catalogue they can take home with them.
