The Children’s Museum Verona wants to stimulate new generations’ curiosity and hunger for knowledge.
Children’s Museum Verona
The Children’s Museum Verona is a museum suitable for children from 0 to 12 years old. It is interactive, with a high experiential content based on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics).
Born from an idea of Gruppo Pleiadi s.c.s. (LINK at http://www.pleiadi.net) – Italian society specialized in science communication – with the support of the Cariverona Foundation and the Veneto Region, the Children’s Museum Verona found its home in the area of the Ex Magazzini Generali in Verona, an area of industrial archaeology, truly meaningful for the city of Verona.
The Children’s Museum Verona is the first museum for children in the North East of Italy and the fourth in Italy, designed for children from 0 to 12 years of age. Using visual, sensory, playful and emotional experiences, the museum aims at transmitting its complex scientific concepts and stimulating creativity. A space for everyone, young and adults, where you can manipulate objects, observe and learn about the surrounding world, exploring your potential. A place where adults and children are called to discover together all the museum’s contents and interactive exhibits, becoming actors and protagonists of a unique experience.
It’s part of Hands On! – International Association of Children’s Museums and is a member of ECSITE – European Network of Science Center and Museums, with which it shares the philosophy of informal learning and the teaching of scientific subjects through direct experience.
It is the perfect place to discover the world, to practice, to try new things, to touch by encountering unique and unforgettable experiences driven by the power of curiosity. Curiosity exists in each one of us, all we need is creativity, imagination and the desire to get in the game to light it on!
Curiosity is the common thread that connects the areas of the museum that extend over two floors for a total of 1000 square meters: from the ThinkLab – a multi-functional laboratory designed for the development of practical activities where constructions are at the centre of the experience – to the Interactive Area, where the “wow” effect makes learning an unmissable adventure.
At the Children’s Museum Verona 3 fundamental rules are respected:
- Enter without shoes
- Be curious
- Touch everything!
