Interdisciplinary interactive visits

From art to history, to religion and mentality, visits to the museum deepen and complement the knowledge about us and the world. Face to face with the object, in a less conventional and rigid space, a distinct atmosphere, treating the subjects in a freer way - all this helps the visitor to see, to select, to develop his imagination and creative spirit. Along with school and other cultural institutions, the museum is the most suitable place for educating and training the public.

In this context, our educational offer includes:

Autonomous visits

These allow the accompanying teachers to freely discover the exhibitions with his class.

Discovery visits

Adapted according to the class level, they allow the discovery of the main landmarks of the exhibition in the company of the cultural mediator of the museum.

Themed workshop visits

During the visits, the children are challenged to think critically, to make comparisons, to find similarities, to identify, to classify, to describe, to generalize, thus the museum object becoming a means of training. At the end of the visit, the children will have the opportunity to consolidate their knowledge through games, competitions, short creative workshops.

In this context, the museum project includes the following themes:

Artistic genres

Art is also a science with its own conceptions, ideas and rules. During this visit, children will learn to distinguish various artistic genres based on examples from the museum's collection, getting acquainted with the fundamental notions of plastic language and the basic elements of art history and theory. At the end of the visit, the children will be able to independently make a picture in their favorite genre, applying in practice the theoretical reference points of art.

Myths and legends

Who among us has not been enchanted in childhood by the miraculous world of myths and legends? Now children have the opportunity not only to read about gods, nymphs, heroes, fauna, but also to admire wonderful works from the museum's collection whose authors were inspired by the mythological universe. Myths come to life and unfold right in front of children's eyes!

Life at the royal court

Every girl dreams of a gala dress in which to go to the ball, and the boys would like to be fearless knights, ready at any time to take the defense of the lady of his heart. The era of elegance and refinement, finesse and chivalry can be seen in paintings depicting characters from long gone times.

Fashions and clothing

Fashion and style are always changing dimensions. Over the centuries, human clothing has reflected the course of history. Sophisticated crinolines were replaced by classic dresses, puffy pants in an elegant suit, and high wigs were given in favor of natural hair placed in a light hairstyle. Let's follow the dizzying fashion itinerary together!

Talking gestures

The gesture can say a thousand words, and a fleeting glance can betray ... what? The game of eyes can reveal different human emotions: love, hate, fear, joy ... What would it be like to try to penetrate the emotional state of the characters in the works exhibited in the museum halls? We will thus discover a rich inner world rendered only by a look, facial expression or gesture.

Great Christian holidays

We belong to a nation with rich religious traditions and to demonstrate to the young generation the spiritual strength of the nation, we invite you to take a trip through the rooms with Religious Art of the museum, stopping in front of the most representative works of this kind. In the calm atmosphere of the room, the moderator will tell the children about the great Christian holidays, about the life of the saints and some biblical characters.

The story of nature

Nature does not speak, but it is revealed by multiple observations of a keen eye and attentive to the most subtle details of a trembling forest, a rushing river or a flourishing field. The landscapes reveal the charm of nature, the city has its own charm that can be noticed in the paintings with city views or in architectural landscapes.

Europe in five paintings

A trip to Europe does not require much time and money. Do you disagree with this statement? Such a journey is possible without leaving the museum. We offer you an imaginary trip in five paintings - five European countries. Enjoy the pleasure of visiting a foreign country!


The creative workshop is an unconventional place where little art lovers will create their own universe. Art appears in this framework as a means of expression, of unleashing emotions, of releasing the imagination.

The workshop is organized on the occasion of the International Day of Museums, winter holidays and Easter holidays. Within it, the children accompanied by the project coordinator will fully manifest their creativity, creating "works of art", using the technique of modeling, application, drawing, collage, etc. a. These will be later exhibited at the children's art exhibitions inside the museum.

Interactive visits

Hello, Mr. Artist!

During the personal exhibitions held at the museum, the children will have the opportunity to get acquainted with the author of the exhibited works. During the discussion with her artist, they will become familiar with the materials and techniques used to create the works, and the painter, in turn, will discover some of the secrets of the arts. We invite you, therefore, to approach various aspects of art in the interactive "Hello, Mr. Artist!"

Art interference

In the school year 2008-2009 the National Museum of Art launched a project in collaboration with the music school „E. Doga ”with the generic“ Arts Interference ”, an intercalation of music and plastic arts, with the participation of primary and secondary school students. Given the success of the project, the museum's moderators set out to continue this experience in 2009-2010. We will bring the muses under the same roof so that the children have the unique opportunity to discover and admire the colors of music and the music of colors. To participate in the interactive you need an appointment at least one month in advance.

Special events

Museographers tend to diversify their museum activity, organizing special events for the public of all categories and ages. The most representative events are the International Museum Day, the Museum Night and the Children's Carnival.

Since 1977, the International Committee of Museums has celebrated Museum Day on 18 May. On this day, the balance of a museum year is made. A series of activities has been taking place since May 18: openings, unique exhibitions, theater performances, classical music concerts, etc. a. The most loyal and active visitors receive the Museum Friend Card.

The Night of Museums has been organized since 2005 at the initiative of the French Ministry of Culture, to which more than 47 European countries have joined in the meantime. On this night the museum operates free of charge until 24.00.

Children's carnival

Children's favorite holidays are winter. Winter is the season of holidays, gifts and happy parties. During this period, MNAM organizes the Children's Carnival, an event full of humor, songs and dances. The children will decorate the Christmas tree of the museum themselves with toys, garlands and greeting cards made during the creative workshops, being actively involved in the preparation for the Carnival.

It has become a beautiful tradition to organize exhibitions of children's drawings with the title "Winter and its holidays in the creation of small artists." True works of art appear on the museum's walls, and the authors are happy to be in the exhibition. We invite you to participate with us in the most beautiful events of the year!
