FAMILY DISCOVERY SPACES

For families with 6-10 year olds - take a backpack and 'time-travel’ through different periods of Europe’s past! Kids will smell, feel and live history as never before, through role-play games in a 1960s Travel Agency, walking in the shoes of an astronaut or grappling with robots. Family Spaces are available in 24 languages and accessible during opening hours of the museum. Extra facilitated learning activities are on: Wednesday afternoons from 14:00 to 17:00, Saturdays, Sundays at 10:30 to 11:30 and 14:00 to 17:00. Entrance is free. No reservation required.

FAMILY TRAIL: RESTLESS YOUTH

How many doves of peace will you find in the exhibition? What did your parents look like when they were 20? Long hair or dyed hair? Very short skirts? What will you look like when you grow up? Ask your parents to share a memory of a journey they made when they were 20 Through questions and games, the family trail lets you discover the interests and passions of young people from the past and  helps you explore the issues that might be important to you in a few years’ time.
