RARE Heat, a large exhibition at the Slovak National Museum that is accompanied by English text, encourages rational energy use in people's homes. Designed in an interactive, playful way, it explains the issue of energy on a level understandable to children, with advice on energy-cost savings for their parents.

Visitors to the exhibition can find various bits of information on using renewable energy resources as well as expert assistance for eliminating heat loss.

A huge red and yellow thermo-vision picture documenting heat loss welcomes visitors at the entrance. After entering, one then finds a room with interactive devices aimed at providing a better understanding of the balance between consumer demands and nature's resources. One such device is Etacykel, an electricity bicycle-generator that changes the work of muscles into energy. Other parts of the exhibition show the gradual development of heating technology, give important information on how to begin energy-cost saving, and offer a comparison on the issue with other European countries.

"Energy is a business these days. The aim of this exhibition is to help people solve their problems with high invoices for heat and energy," said the project's curator, Július Rosa.

The exhibition was prepared in cooperation with the Slovak Energy Agency under the auspices of the Construction Faculty at the Slovak Technical University. It runs at the museum on Vajanského nábrežie 2, in Bratislava, until February 27.
