You don't need to go to the Ollivander's Shop at Diagon Alley anymore. At Confiction you will learn how to create real wands. However, it is the materials you will use to create them from that will choose you; in the end they will determine who becomes their owner! You will use different materials to make the most important object of the wizard. How do you see it, will it be a wand made with the hair of a unicorn's tail or a fiber from a dragon's heart?

The Manggha museum is a fusion of basic functions of a museum with the broad activity of a living cultural of centre, popularising knowledge on Japan and the Far East. The modern, friendly building, designed by renowned Japanese architect Arata Isozaki, houses a new type of museum that utilises new methods and forms of action. Using rich experiences and contacts, we deal with issues related primarily to art, but also music, theatre, film, literature, philosophy, religion of Japan and the Far East. Until now we have had over 100 exhibits, both of traditional Japanese art, contemporary graphics, painting, installations, as well as newest technologies straight from Japan.
