Our programs for schools come in two varieties: exhibition programs and workshops.

Exhibition programs:

An exhibition program consists of an exploration of three or four museum galleries on the basis of research assignments that the pupils carry out autonomously. The exhibition program starts with a 15-minute introduction by an educational assistant in the reception area. Staff are on hand in every gallery to answer any questions the pupils may have about the learning cabinets.

Workshops:

In a workshop, a single topic is explored in depth in one of our labs. Our educational assistants guide you through the entire program, which includes a visit to one of the galleries.

NB: the programs do not include free admittance, nor do they include visits to the Rexperience or the Japanese Theater.
