Learning through play

There is a lot to experience especially for the little ones among us! We take them on a treasure hunt and let them discover all the secrets of MergelRijk in a playful way. Using films by the sand wizard, the children make their own sand drawing, discover a special fossil and mining museum and answer questions via the interactive tablets. As the icing on the cream cake, they are allowed to work in the cave workshop with their one and only, own, own work of art.
