Guided tours and interactive labs
For families, friends and schools
The educational activities of the Museo del Novecento allow the public to experiment the museum as a place for discussion, creativity and dialogue, a place to live and not just to observe. In collaboration with Ad Artem, the Museum offers numerous educational services: guided tours for individual visitors, groups, families, and schools and interactive labs addressed to children and teenagers.
The Museum endorses a few special initiatives to bring children closer to the world of art. Among these is the National Family Museum Day (F@mu) and creative writing laboratories for children, organized in collaboration with La Grande Fabbrica delle Parole (The Great Word Factory).
Since 2014, the Museo del Novecento has been part of the Il Mio Amico Museo (My Friend the Museum) project, a museum network created with the intent to gather the best of Milan’s cultural initiatives conceived for children, proposing a yearlong path that leads parents and children toward the discovery of the museums of the city.
Moreover, the Museum participates in the “Sky Arte HD for Museums” project addressed to children and youngsters between 7 and 12 years of age: a whole new way to leverage the museum experience with a free app that allows them to have fun while discovering the masterpieces displayed in Italian museums.
The Museum also works with other institutions to propose itself as a location that is open and accessible to all. Thanks to ENS Milan (Italian National Agency for the protection and assistance of the Deaf), it has been possible to organize a few visits in Italian Sign Language.
In 2016, a tactile itinerary for the visually impaired is proposed in collaboration with Arte Insieme. On World Mental Health Day 2015, the Museum hosted the first edition of the Living Library dedicated to mental health, in an attempt to destroy the prejudice and stereotyping surrounding mental health issues.
