Explora is a customised location for children, designed according to the education approach known as ‘Learning by doing’. This ‘hands on – minds-on‘ approach makes children learn by playing and sharing new experiences in a place rich in boosts, that is in continuous evolution. The Museum joined a network of children’s Museums through the associations ‘Hands On! Europe’ and ‘Ecsite’, the European network of science centres and museums.
The didactic tours at Explora vary according to age and school levels. Activities are held in an informal and stimulating location, and are based on emulation games, hands-on experiences and entertainment. The activities, led by Explora staff, nourish children sense of adventure and science, stimulating their natural learning desire.Workshops and thematic tours are annually revised. They are a great opportunity to learn, they raise children’s awareness of the world around them.
