With Pauline through the museum

Audiorundgang - in deutscher Sprache / Audio tour - in German language
die kleine Pauline öffnet den Vorhang und lädt Erwachsene und Kinder in Begleitung ein Geschichten aus ihrem Leben zu hören und damit einen Blick hinter die Kulissen des Museums und auf das Haus zur Sonne und seine Bewohner zu werfen.
Enter the 19th century and meet the little girl called Pauline.
She is the granddaughter of Franz Josef Dietschy, founder of the Salmen brewery. Still a little girl she lives with her parents, brothers and sisters in the house of the sun.
Go up with her across the domestic staircase. Listen at the doors and hear family stories. Once on the top floor, you enter a room and ... return to the present. Pauline learns what happened to her parents' house – it becomes a museum.
In different stations you can hear stories from the museum, about Mozart in the music room, the flea and the plague in Rheinfelden, about the journey of the salmon ... Look for the museum and other buildings on the model of the old city of the museum. And step by step you will get back to the museum's ground floor.
