Déri Museum and Zoo Debrecen offer joint spring experiences

The two major public collections of the city, the Déri Museum and Zoo Debrecen, have joined  to give the public a closer look at the unique natural and cultural richness of Asia.

The promotion is valid from the 2nd to the 30th of April and includes by showing a full-price ticket to one institution, the other institution can be visited at a significant discount on weekdays, and both the Museum and the Park will bring the Far East even closer to its visitors with additional thematic programmes.

In the great spring time the fauna and flora of five continents can be admired, including Asia, under the trees of the Great Forest, where visitors can meet such public favourites as Mulan, the world rarity leopard cub from northern China. Mulan or Mei, the first red panda born in Debrecen can guide visitors through the Park as  main characters in a free search game at the entrance. It’s also worth visiting the plaid python in the new terrarium, as well as the information corner on palm oil next to the crocodile-tailed cam lizards and Vietnamese cave geckos.

In the Déri Museum, Samurai Manor House can also be seen, which is significant not only by domestic but also by international standards, where the flourishing industrial arts of the Edo period and Japanese everyday life at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries come alive with a true to age atmosphere. After pre-registration, a Japanese “weapon simulation” session led by historian József Dénes Kovács can be visited, or the colourful permanent exhibition of the Land of the Rising Sun can be seen.

From the 8th to the 30th of April, every Thursday morning from 10.00 a.m. to 2.00 p.m., families can take part in museum education sessions. The programme introduces the Samurai Mansion in a playful way. Registration is also required for these exciting experiences.

Information about discounts and additional programmes is available on the websites of the Déri Museum and Zoo Debrecen.
