Zootopia audio tour offers a dosis of recent scientific research in artistic arrangement and leads the visitor deeper into the life and skills of animals. Species-specificity, matriarchy, sexual identity, gender blendering, substance use and sensory exploration are some of the reflected themes on the menu.
Zootopia functions with a map and audio files, which are downloadable online to mobile phone or any audio equipment. The tour is for adults only and the visitor is fully responsable for participation.
Start the tour by listening the track "Beginning"
