A new app offers lots fun during the holidays. With this app, the Museum Koenig Bonn and the seven other research museums of the Leibniz Association throughout Germany are networking. Objects like the baobab guide visitors through the game and set exciting quests to be solved. Almost magically, objects from different museums can be placed in a new context. Starting today, the free app is available in the stores for iOS and Android.

From June 21, 2022, visitors will be able to discover the eight Leibniz research museums in Berlin, Bochum, Bonn, Bremerhaven, Frankfurt am Main, Nuremberg, Mainz and Munich with twiddle – the museum riddle.

The app twiddle invites teenagers and young adults to explore the museums in a new interactive discovery tour. On site, they have to solve tasks (“quests”) about existing objects. The game is played in one of the eight Leibniz research museums. By means of various quests, objects from this museum are collected – virtually, of course. To successfully solve the tasks, however, objects from the other museums must also be integrated. In this way, visitors get a glimpse of the exhibitions and objects from the other Leibniz research museums. If you want to play the game in its entirety, you will need about an hour to do so.

twiddle can be started beyond an application in the museum also from outside the museums: A “homequest” allows you to get to know the game, solve first quests and try out the mechanics. For the full adventure, the player then goes to one of the eight research museums.

twiddle is available now for free in the following App Stores:
