On 17th November, 2011 ten children from Ruse’s social services complex had the chance to explore the world of animals.
The children visited the department of the regional history museum dedicated to ecology and natural science. The main exhibits place stuffed animals (taxidermy) in simulations of their natural environments and graphically demonstrate a wide cross section of the local ecology sufficient to spark the curiosity of young visitors. The children directed many questions to Venceslav Petkov, the custodian of the department and an old friend of Equilibrium. One lad asked if he could come and work in the museum when he grows up.
The secrets of taxidermy were revealed to the young explorers in the museum’s workshop. The significant educational impact of this kind of experience became clear during the course of the visit and the children showed a strong desire to continue their relationship with the museum.
