Forever Young – Welcome to the long life

The tour begins with birth. A light installation symbolizes the beginning of life. You land on the path of life, which shows you abilities we lose or gain in age. You can even find out how much lifetime you have left.

In the next room a film is shown that talks about the desire for eternal youth, and in the following area you can find out how the anti-aging market promises to stop the aging process.

My personal highlight: 100 people aged between 10 and 100 years were recorded, answering the same questions. Here it’s made clear once again how different the generations and their experiences, wishes and fears are.

At the end, you get insight into the lives of four 100-year-olds by looking at personal pictures and listening to their stories. With the end of the exhibition, the circle of life closes.

I am thrilled about “forever young” because everyone can identify with it. It is even more beautiful to visit the exhibition with somebody from another generation. I was there with my mother and it was a valuable experience for both of us, as we talked about the differences between our ages. I highly recommend “forever young” because it’s beautiful and the stories of the protagonists are touching. You get consciously grateful for your life (especially as a young person).

The exhibition runs until the end of May 2022. The tour lasts between 60 and 90 minutes. I advise you not to hurry. Enjoy it and let the impressions work on you.
