Educational goals met:
Analyzing criminality and discussion of theories of punishment and prevention.
Explore local and global problems, discussion of solutions.
One of our central goals is to educate on law and the judiciary, and how they are necessary for a society to function. In this tour we explore different methods of punishments from the 17th century to today. The tour covers the building’s history as a slavery and criminal asylum. We also cover the executioner’s ax, Rinnan’s torture tools, and other criminal acts. All our tours are dialog based and we invite students and teachers to form their own tour through discussion and questions if desired.
Important points in the tour:
- Why is law and justice necessary for society to function?
- What is does it mean that a society is just and follows the rule of law?
- What kinds of punishments did they use before?
- What kinds of acts were criminal before, but not now? Why?
All our tours can be made bespoke to your desired topics. If we want to combine different educational programs or have a little of everything, or have special topics your class is focusing on, please contact us.
