Birds for Sadako
Sadako Sasaki (Hiroshima, 1943-1955) was one of the victims of the Second World War. This young girl died of the effects produced by the atomic bomb dropped on the city of Hiroshima in 1945. While she was fighting for her life in hospital, Sadako learned of an ancient Japanese legend that promised to grant a wish to anyone who folded a thousand origami cranes. Although her wish did not come true, her story has survived and she is still remembered today. The exhibition called “Ocells per a Sadako” was organised by the Toy Museum of Catalonia in 2006 in partnership with the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum.
Robots & Robots. Strange and fascinating creatures.
This audiovisual display was part of the temporary exhibition "Robots & Robots”, launched at the Toy Museum of Catalonia in 2008.
The locomotives in this H0 scale analogue model railway with a 1:32 scale double circuit use a catenary system, which means that the model requires constant maintenance. The model also includes a replica of the Núria rack railway, the Vallvidrera funicular railway and the Montserrat cable car. In addition to creating the circuit and its electrical features, Andreu Costa Pedro also made time to surround his models with detailed scenery in order to make the entire model railway more realistic.
