ACCESSIBILITY

Since we first opened our doors to the public in 2001, our aim has been to become a hub for families, schools, and children, offering a unique opportunity for play, hands-on experimentation, and on-site learning through socializing and fun experiences.

We recognize that everyone has different needs, and we are committed to creating an inclusive environment where children, families, and schools can actively participate in our activities. An accessible museum means allowing our visitors to experience the thrill of discovery, sharing together moments of growth and deepening understanding. Would you like to contribute to our accessibility improvements? Provide your feedback on how to make your visit more welcoming and enjoyable. Use this form: link

During the visit – Suggestions for parents:

  • • Respect your children’s choices: repeated and apparently similar actions are important to enhance their developmental potential;
  • • Listen and pay attention to your children: you will focus on their activities and will help them build their competence;
  • • Observe your children and how they play;
  • • Stimulate their creativity asking questions or giving simple suggestions: let them do;
  • • Take part in your children’s play, have fun with them and share their feelings without forgetting to give them the suggestions you consider important for their development through play.
