The method

To involve young people and engage them as participants and protagonists through a focus on interaction and dialogue within the framework of rigorous educational objectives, and with particular attention paid to an interdisciplinary approach and the inclusiveness of all students. This strategy has been applied to the planning proposals for schools, linked to the contents of the museum collections and the major temporary exhibitions, and calibrated in relation to the various age groups, types of school, and the multiple requirements for in-depth study.

Due to the Covid-19 restrictions, educational activities in the museum for school groups are temporarily suspended.


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.


Interactive itineraries

Living the museum in a dynamic and engaging way, well “beyond” the traditional guided tour, but adopting an interactive, cooperative approach and using materials that remain available to students and teachers in order to settle and integrate the museum experience back in the classroom.


Museum in the classroom

Museum staff visit schools, providing workshops or other in-depth
activities (in Italian only).

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.

Alternating school and work

Various projects are available, implemented both in the educational sector and individual museums, as part of a directive developed by our Human
Resources Service (in Italian only).


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.
