New social and educational activities of the Acropolis Museum
For refugees and migrants, it has designed a special programme in which people with different cultural backgrounds and experiences become familiar with the history and culture of their host country. Through a series of selected exhibits, participants learn about the Acropolis rock and the great moments in its history, the art and the people who created it, and exchange views and experiences with the archaeologists who accompany them.
In the second-chance schools of the country's Detention Centres, the Museum offers online tours of its halls and its most important exhibits, enabling participants to gain new experiences, cultivate their aesthetics and exchange knowledge, opinions and reflections.
At the same time, it created on its website the section "the Museum at School", with online programmes offered to schools in remote areas of Greece and to schools abroad. The section has also been enriched with digital applications that can be used in the classroom, making the lesson more attractive and experiential. In the same area, teachers can find information about the museum kits that continue to be made available to schools and a repository of educational material from which they can obtain information about the Acropolis and the Museum's exhibits.
All the above programmes are offered free of charge.
