INTERACTIVE EXHIBITION "FOLK ASTRONOMY AND METEOROLOGY"

REGIONAL ETHNOGRAPHIC MUSEUM - PLOVDIV

and

HISTORICAL MUSEUM - DIMITROVGRAD

are pleased to invite you to

interactive exhibition

"Folk astronomy and meteorology"

 

           The exhibition illustrates popular notions of the starry sky, sun, moon, stars and comets, as well as meteorological phenomena such as rain, snow, lightning, rainbow, fog, dew, clouds, wind and more. Folk astronomy includes centuries-old observations of our ancestors on the stars and constellations, the discovery of cosmic cycles that have an impact on the growth and life of the earth. Folk meteorology consists of predicting the weather on plants, animals or natural phenomena.    

           The Ethnographic Museum preserves the folk material culture, also the folk traditions, beliefs and customs, presenting them in an up-to-date and interactive way. Here you can discover the worldview of our ancestors by feeling the mist like a Dragon spewing smoke from its nostrils; to see how on St. George's Day every drop turns into gold; to meet the Big Dipper and learn many interesting methods for knowing the weather by natural phenomena, plants and animals; to learn how to make divinations and spells; to discover the constellations on an interactive model of the northern celestial hemisphere; have fun with riddles, fairy tales, and more.   

           The exhibition will open on 12.05.2021, 17.30 , in the halls of the Historical Museum - Dimitrovgrad. 

           Welcome to the world of stars and clouds from 12.05. 2021 until 30.06.2021!
