The basements of the three-storey building of the Shelter Barracks on Góra Gradowa in Gdańsk, serve as the rooms for children.

The laboratory is an experimental and workshop space, a place of educational plays for preschool and early school children.

In four casemates, particular play zones have been organized: the game room, the show and the experiments room. The first zone, where children play under the supervision of their parents, is divided into two parts: a playroom with soft floor, equipped with multimedia games, and the space with water attractions. The next two casemates are dedicated for workshops or occasional meetings.

The names and scenery refer to Mr Kleks’s famous Academy. Children can find here the colourful world of Bajdocja, the sea depths of Abecja, the Land of Sleepy Mirrors, where dreams and reality mix, and Mr Kleks’s Kitchen decorated with freckles.
