Educational services


School program 2021-22

The Educational Activities Office of the Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia MUVE Education is once again offering schools of all levels – from Infancy to Higher Education (university and equivalent) and to their teaching staff – its rich and varied proposal of activities, thematic itineraries, workshops and moments of in-depth study, which also include the main temporary exhibitions. These activities aree carried out both in the museum and in the classroom.

The unusual situation we are still facing due to the Covid-19 pandemic has not prevented us from devising and planning alternative strategies and ways for teachers and students to use our extraordinary museum heritage, and these also include special and sometimes new and innovative tools such as toolkits, activity books and virtual tours.

These, of course, are complemented by the usual educational proposals organised in our museums or at school, with our specialised museum educators, appropriately updated and revised for the occasion.

The intention is always to consider our museums as real ‘educational entities’ for schools, as well as important and versatile work tools, and sees us engaged in the fundamental task of transmitting values to be shared and inherited, working on special approaches and methodologieswhile also keeping an eye on inclusion and special needs.

Involving children by making them protagonists, favouring interaction and dialogue without forgetting a focus on didactic and educational programmes, as well as interdisciplinarity: this is the approach that inspires the wide range of activities for the year 2021-2022, which are developed in three main directions:


What activities? What approach?

Inclusion & special needs

Activities are structured to include all students, but can always be adapted to suit special needs through the availability of specific tools, such as translation
into sign language, tactile and multi-sensory materials and customising itineraries, supports and proposals. Do not hesitate to contact us at education@fmcvenezia so that, together, we can make all that we offer fully inclusive.

Schools at the Museum

Always available by appointment, divided into ACTIVE ITINERARIES and WORKSHOPS, further enriched and adapted also with specific kits to continue the experience in the classroom

Language learning in a museum

The museums become tools for learning or improving a foreign Language (FL) by employing the CLIL method (Content and Language Integrated Learning), or by following an active approach to Italian culture and language (L2) for immigrant children. But in our opinion, integration goes beyond “just” the linguistic aspect: for this reason we have long studied, tested and prepared special projects in an intercultural key.


And in addition…

For teachers

Special events, training courses, programme schedules delivered to schools
before the start of the school year, a presentation open day, and a help desk for designing personalised activities.

Special projects

Lessons in the museums, intercultural and study activities.



To conclude…

We deeply believe that museums can play a very important role for schools, transforming themselves into versatile “work tools”, and into supports useful for teaching programmes, with innovative methodologies. Above all, we update our own practices and our operators too, all high-level professionals. But we are also constantly listening and open to contributions and proposals.
This approach inspires the entire range of activities that we address to schools of all levels, from infancy to the higher education system (university and equivalent), and to the teaching staff, which we invite you to discover in the previous links.
