EXPLORA: THE CHILDREN'S MUSEUM IN ROME

written by Chiara Guzzetti

Ostuni città bianca

Modeled after the first children's museum, which was founded in Boston in 1899, the museum's aim is to expand learning beyond the parameters of the classroom, and to help children understand themselves and the society in which they live. In the opening exhibit, which begins with the word "io", ("I") children understand how they came to be, from conception through doctor visits and delivery.

A second area teaches children about daily necessities like food, water, shelter and transportation. There are areas designed to teach them about the ecosystem and respecting the environment, and about communication and the role of technology.

Special arrangements can be made for birthday parties hosted at the museum.
English speaking staff members and arrangements for school groups are available, but you'll need to call in advance.
Via Flaminia, 82 (near Piazza del Popolo and the Ministry of the Navy) Tuesday -Friday 9:30 - 11:30 am and 3-5 pm.. Saturday, Sunday and public holidays 10 am-noon and 3-5 pm Visits last 1 hour and 45 min. Reservations are necessary on weekends and holidays. Children must be accompanied by adults
