Our interactive special exhibition! A total of 18 large-format 3D paintings with bizarre, adventurous, modern and traditional motifs will be presented across the entire ground floor at Meissen Albrechtsburg Castle. But there’s always something missing – and that’s you!

Get yourself in the picture! Awake a sleeping beauty from her slumber with a sneaky kiss, feed the little fur animal from Leonardo da Vinci’s »Lady with an Ermine«, safely stroke a tiger »In the Jungle«, and wobble on a hanging bridge on an »Adventure Holiday in China«… Our new Chinese exhibition offers a wide range of experiences. It will be housed in Meissen for six months – and nowhere else in Saxony! Stand before or in the pictures, interact by posing in various creative ways, and have countless pictures taken by your friends, children, aunties and grandfathers. What other museum lets you do all that? You can round off a perfect day by sharing your own versions of the pictures online: Are you really in China? Or are you »only« part of the artwork?
