▶ ︎ Right next door, the world-famous Terracotta Army – an archaeological sensation that was only discovered in 1974 – is waiting for visitors from Thursday (until September 19). Admission: 10 to 18 euros. Curator Burkard Pfrenzinger (67) brought the clay figures to Europe for the first time 20 years ago: “We have set up 150 full-size replicas of warrior figures and horses from the Chinese Empire. They are all fired in old clay ovens and weigh 150 to 450 kilos. “

The “Technikum” celebrates its premiere with the two exhibitions as a new event location in the Ruhr area. The organizers are concerned that the incidence number will stay above 100 for longer. Because then they would have to close again.
