- It creates and presents (in collaboration with “Le Musee des Enfants” of Brussels, Belgium) interactive exhibitions, which promote self-knowledge through play.
- It gives life to the exhibitions for school groups with the help of museum animators.
- It creates activities and workshops which encourage self-knowledge and communication between children and adults through play.
- It holds annual workshops for children.
- It holds seminars for adults.
Who is the museum addressed to?
- To children from 4 to 14 years old.
