Have you heard of the astronomical measuring instrument called the astrolabon, which combines the words "star" and "to catch" in Ancient Greek? Children and their fathers, who tour The Art of Weights and Measures exhibition with a guided tour, get to know tools such as quadrant and astrolabe, which are measuring instruments used in astronomy, as well as determining time and direction in the past. Participants then design star-collars that can measure the latitude of their location when they go out on a cloudless night and point it towards the pole star.
Capacity: 10 children (and their fathers)
The event is free of charge. eservation is required.
The event will take place at the Pera Museum (face-to-face).

Inspired by its Anatolian Weights and Measures Collection, Pera Museum presents a contemporary video installation titled For All the Time, for All the Sad Stones at the gallery that hosts the Collection. The installation by the artist Nicola Lorini takes its starting point from recent events, in particular the calculation of the hypothetical mass of the Internet and the weight lost by the model of the kilogram and its consequent redefinition, and traces a non-linear voyage through the Collection.
