Educational services



For the new 2023-24 school year, the Educational Activities Office of the Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia MUVE addresses its wide range of activities and moments of in-depth study – including in major temporary exhibitions – for the museums and/or for the classroom, to all schools of all levels – nursery school, primary school, high school, university and equivalent – and to their teaching staff.

For some time now, the museum space has offered a useful and versatile working tool for the world of education, establishing itself as a true ‘educational body’ in involving educators, teachers and children in the transmission and sharing of important values and themes thanks to special methodologies and approaches that aim also at inclusion and to respond to special needs.

This approach inspires the more than ninety educational proposals – including thematic itineraries, workshops, classroom activities, virtual tours, toolkits, language school, special projects, and in-depth moments for teachers – drawn up and organised for all MUVE locations (both in Venice and Mestre) or in school, promptly updated for the new 2023-24 school year with new ideas and activities.

Led by specialised museum educators, the activities are conceived maintaining an interdisciplinary approach and a direct thread with the current educational and didactic programmes, aiming at the full involvement of children through interaction and dialogue.

The 2023-24 programme has been developed in line with the following goals of AGENDA 2030 for sustainable development.


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.
