THE STABLE YARD
The last piece
The leader of the resistance movement in Kolding is in danger - the Gestapo is coming! You are now the only one who can warn him in time. But who is he? How are you ever going to find him?
With the help of Gestapo index cards, the knowledge of your friends and your common sense, you can work out who the city manager is and reach him before the Gestapo.
The activity takes place in the exhibition "1943 - The Gestapo is coming!" and only requires a curious child and an adult with a ticket to the exhibition. Entrance for adults DKK 70, children under 18 are free. Staldgården 1, 6000 Kolding Tuesday – Sunday at 11.00 – 16.00 Price: Children free, adults DKK 70.
Lost in the future
During the celebration of Christiansfeld's 250th anniversary, a whirlwind has arisen in time. The girl Clara, who lived in Søstrehuset over 100 years ago, has been sucked into the time vortex and has now landed in Christiansfeld in 2023. Although she finds it exciting to see what Christiansfeld looks like now, she misses her family and the other girls in the Sister House. She needs your help to go back in time.
In the more than 100 years that have passed, much has happened in the city, but there is also much that has remained almost completely unchanged. By walking around the town and finding the houses that are in the old pictures, you create a connection back in time so that Clara can come home.
You can pick up the assignment in the museum shop in Søstrehuset.
"Lost in the future" takes place in the streets of Christiansfeld and does not require admission to Søstrehuset. It is free to join. Nørregade 14, 6070 Christiansfeld Tuesday – Sunday at 11.00 – 16.00 Price: Free.

Guided tour: In the footsteps of death
When darkness descends over Kolding's streets, all the grim stories come to life. Both murder, executions, plague and sorcery hide in gates and on street corners around the city. Take a special city walk and hear the blood-curdling stories that hide in the shadows.
As the content of the city tour is based on violence, murder and death, the museum recommends that you do not bring children under the age of 12 with you.
