About the travelling museum

Our museum educators also run travelling museum sessions for pre-school, primary and secondary school children.

Our activities complement the curriculum in a variety of ways, stimulating reflection, reorganising existing knowledge, and facilitating the teaching of environmental studies, nature studies, social studies, history, literature, art, drawing and visual culture, and national and ethnic studies.

What we offer:
Hungarian folk tales with the involvement of the whole group, with costumes and tools (Ambrus the King, The Old Fisherman and his Wife, The Pelican Bird, the repertoire can be extended on request). In double lessons, craftwork can be combined with dramatisation.
