Permanent Exhibitions’ Educational Programme
A Cycladic figurine welcomes us and our journey begins…
The educational programme is designed for kindergarten students, offering them the chance to explore the museum, to observe, ask questions, be inspired and create their own stories. An hourly programme that stimulates all the senses.
And yet it’s a human being! The human figure in antiquity
Since the prehistoric age, humans felt the need to depict themselves. Using materials provided by the Earth, they created figurines, vases and amulets in the lands they inhabited. Some resemble boards, others are shaped like letters; some are cross-like and others look like birds. Yet, they all hide a human figure on them! In a specially designed preschool educational programme, children are called to discover the human figures that are hidden on the figurines and the vases of the Museum.
Once upon in Athens…
“Once upon in Athens…” is an educational programme specially designed for preschool children. The daily reality of ancient Athens comes to life in front of the children’s eyes, through audiovisual material, reproductions of the Museum’s exhibits and a fairytale-like narration of a boy’s life from that age.
