Guided tours and interactive labs
For families, friends and schools
The educational activities enable the public to experience the Museum as a place for encounter, learning and experimentation. It is indeed a space to live and inhabit, providing a multidisciplinary schedule while focusing on accessibility, mediation and cultural exchanges.
In collaboration with Ad Artem the Museum provides a rich and various educational program: individual and collective guided tours, worklabs for a public from 11 to 99 years old, laboratories for kids and teenagers, summer camps and more. In order to bring children closer to the art world, the Museum endorses some special projects such as F@MU (The National Family Day at the Museum), while joining "Il Mio Amico Museo" - a network gathering the best activities for kids in Milan. Furthermore in 2016 the collaboration with La Grande Fabbrica delle Parole - started with the creative writing labs for schools in 2014 - has been opened to the public, becoming inclusive for deaf children and parents thanks to the contribution of the Istituto dei Sordi in Milan and to the special support of LIS interpreters.
The main purpose, which is the accessibility and valorization of the Museum cultural heritage, is achieved through an inclusive and participatory perspective: the Museum is a place for collaboration, always ready to find new ways to narrate the cultural and artistic scenario of the XXth century. Collaborating with several public and private institutions, the Museum schedule is enriched by experimental projects, whose aim is to also involve individuals with disabilities and frail publics. From the tactile paths for visually-impaired visitors to the latest challenge promoted by "DescriVedendo" - the accessibility project created with Associazione Nazionale Subvedenti and based on the evocative power of words. From the Living Library created in 2015 for the National Mental Health Day to the Empathic Tales collected with Fondazione Empatia Milano, and presented in 2018 during Bookcity.
