The Poznań Archaeological Museum presents a programme addressed to pupils from pre-elementary schools and older, intended to popularise archaeology as a science and spread their knowledge about the prehistory of Wielkopolska, the Polish territories and ancient civilisations. A museum-based education will be a valuable addition to classes conducted in schools as well as an opportunity to discover a new discipline. The classes, which combine popular appeal with academic rigorousness, are organised to suit the age of the audience and base on various practical demonstrations, participation in experiments, working with artefacts and multimedia.
Participation in classes: registration required. The schedule has to be arranged in advance at telephone number 618528251. In case of cancellation of the class by the Museum, the school will be informed in advance.
Classes in English: 200 PLN for a group of up to 30 persons.
Younger participants (especially pre-elementary children) are offered classes on the premises of their institutions. The cost is arranged individually during registration.
