What does a string telephone have to do with a museum?

From the mouth to the ear through some string. From the object to the hungrily inquisitive visitor through the educator. The String Telephone and the Universalmuseum Joanneum have one thing in common. They communicate.

Reading this booklet means hanging on the coat tails of the authors Vera Bachernegg and Katharina Maria Zimmermann as they steer through a world of museums free of any dust. As they do so, they winkle out various secrets and stories from the region and its people and scribble them down in their notebooks. Such resounding names as birthday boy Peter Rosegger or Archduke Johann take their place besides shooting stars from antiquity.

A (reading) journey that’s hard to forget.
