One of the early museum experiences for children between 4 and 12 years old, where they are provided with an environment adjusted to heir needs and abilities, is the Hellenic Children´s Museum. The main philosophy of the museum is the conviction that real objects, direct experiences and entertainment support learning. The Hellenic Children´s Museum exists to encourage children to discover, understand, learn, enjoy and shape the world in which they live with a respect for individuality and an emphasis on team work.
The Hellenic Children´s Museum has educational activities on two floors for children from 4 to 12 years old but also a seminar program ‘Education in museums’ as well as parents sensitization courses and other adult seminars. The museum employs 12 full- time staff members and 9 part-time staff, supported by approximately 150 volunteers who are employed in all areas of the museum as well as experts in Greece and abroad.
