Museum lessons

The Archaeological Museum in Poznan has prepared a new educational program, addressed to students of kindergartens and schools, whose aim is to popularize archeology as a science and to broaden students' knowledge about the prehistory of Polish lands and ancient civilizations.

Museum education is both a valuable complement to didactic classes in schools as well as a form for acquiring completely new knowledge. Our program consists of museum lessons conducted by archaeologists and historians with experience in popularizing archeology.

The lessons are popular science and have been specially prepared for various age groups. During the lesson, knowledge is passed on to pupils primarily through various types of practical demonstrations, participation in experiments, work with a monument and using a variety of multimedia.
