Description

‘The Odysseum’ explores extraordinary journeys, pilgrimages, expeditions and meanders of the mind that helped us to figure out our place in the world. We will learn about epic trips to the bottom of the ocean, to outer space and to the deepest cave on Earth (‘like climbing an inverted Mount Everest’) as well as micro-journeys, such as Xavier de Maistre’s six-week odyssey around his bedroom and the tale of a Nazi who attempted to walk around the world without setting foot outside of his prison.
