Special exhibition «Metallbaukasten»

Since July 2022 various metal construction sets are being presented. Objects from Meccano, Märklin, Stokys, Eiltech, Tronico and SteelTech are being shown. Already in 1888 there was the first construction set made from wood with punched wooden slats from Gustav Lilienthal, the brother of the aviation pioneer. In 1901 the breakthrough was followed by Meccano, the world’s most successful construction system. Märklin and others followed. The common features of the systems are calibrated with the components, as well as compound- and screw technology.
