School group visits to the National Museum of Anthropology

The National Museum of Anthropology offers guided tours free of charge to schools throughout the school year. These tours, for a maximum of 30 children, are designed for Preschool, Primary and Secondary School students.

The itineraries proposed by the National Museum of Anthropology centre on a selection of items in its permanent collection relating to a given theme and/or culture. The tours are intended to encourage the children to participate actively, with questions alternating with art activities and games in Preschool and Primary School groups, and with analysis of current affairs and personal experiences for Secondary School students.

Three activities have been created for Preschool children, to introduce them to other cultures. 'Our Small World' presents various characters and distant lands, while 'Welcome to Nunavut' takes them on a journey to the North Pole, and 'Indians and Cowboys' to the Wild West.

Primary school students can continue exploring Arctic and Native American peoples with versions of 'Welcome to Nunavut' and 'Indians and Cowboys' adapted for their age group. Also, 'Breaking Down Frontiers: All Equal, All Different' proposes an imaginary journey through the museum's galleries, in which they will discover the values conveyed by a series of objects from different cultures.

Secondary school students will enjoy an introduction to the different ecosystems where humans live, and how people have adapted to those conditions, in the 'Habitats' tour. 'Regions compared' invites them to think about their vision of the world, presenting the solutions and models proposed by different belief systems for the same problems.
