After its reconstruction, the old salt storage house turned into a multifunctional tourism station which, just like caravanserays in the past, offers relaxation and recreation to the tired wayfarer. In addition to receiving shelter and refreshment, tourists arriving here by train, car, by riding a horse or a bicycle, on water or on foot, will be able to obtain information about the sights of the region, and will even have the chance to organise their way on. The Mobility Centre is a place which is good both to arrive at and be around, because it offers a contentful stay.
The community area comprising two rooms occupying the building can attract people of all age groups, since the interactive installations set up here offer a playful way of finding out about the values found in Barcs and the surrounding areas. The community space is made up of a square-shaped ground floor and a gallery. The gallery can be a place for tourists individually gaining information: because of its relative isolation and shape, devices involving sounds are also installed here. In addition to Hungarian language, all the contents of the exhibition are available in English and Croatian, too.
Visitors arriving at the Mobility Centre first step into the community area on the ground level where a board game and smart points are installed. You can find out about the interactive exhibition here.
The 98 m2 exhibition area situated in the Mobility Centre comprises five different elements, and besides the wall decoration having a pleasant atmosphere, there are also bean bag chairs, benches and tables to be used in various games. The purpose of the exhibition is to inform and educate visitors of all age groups about the history of transport, industrial heritage, traditions, natural environment, cultural and ethnographic values of Barcs.
The huge, coloured tokens and dices of the board game, together with the game field (board) covering almost the entire floor area invite people to play. Because the simple game rules of Ludo are well known for almost everyone irrespective of their nationality, a joyful game round can soon develop. The colours and icons of the game board elements refer to the 5 Smart points placed around it, showing information and interesting facts about the particular modes of transport.
The main attraction of the Mobility Centre is the game board occupying the major part of the community area on the ground level. With its large size and colourful figures it invites people to play. Because the rules are those of the popular Ludo board game, visitors are not required to read sophisticated game descriptions. The few special rules can be easily understood by quickly reading through the tables displayed on the pillars. The size of the game area allows for playing in a group. Families or friends can form teams, with tasks for everyone. The dice is big, yet lightweight and soft so that it will not hurt should it hit someone. The tokens can be moved about without having to be lifted, allowing even a little kid to toss them along the board.
Touchscreen kiosks are located at the walls surrounding the board game, which allow visitors to browse about the particular modes of transport, their history in Barcs and other interesting facts.
