Treść ścieżki edukacyjnej

Take a journey into the world of art, where nothing is as it seems at first glance. Look carefully at the objects and then start your own investigation. What is the object used for? Who or what does it represent? What is it made of? Do not ignore every little detail, because everything can have a meaning. It will be discovered by someone with a detective’s mind. So, what are your ideas?
