Museum Educational Programmes 
A. “Blue heroes take action on climate change & the environment” 
Prompted by our Museum’s new Smurf collection, we are implementing a museum educational programme with the main goal of raising children’s awareness in relation to climate change and its effects on the environment and our lives.  
The students will turn into Smurfs and you will assign them a mission: Not to save Smurfette from Gargamel, but to save our planet from harmful human activity. Through the clear storytelling, the optimistic humour, the strong graphic style and the constant creativity of the little blue creatures, students get to know good practices that can be applied in our daily lives, with the aim of learning to respect the environment – both the natural environment as well as animals – in order to bequeath a healthy planet to future generations. (Directorate of Modern Cultural Heritage: Actions aimed at the dissemination of knowledge and ways in order to ensure a sustainable environment in mitigating climate change. 
B. “Discovering the secrets of games” 
When did children first play with dolls? What does Athena (the mascot of the Olympic Games) have to do with Barbie? Were there board games before there were tables? How does a can turn into an airplane, taking you on a journey around the world?  
These and many other questions will be answered and the hidden secrets of the games in the Children’s Museum of Thessaloniki will be revealed.  
The journey into the world of toys begins here: children will learn about the history of toys in a fun way, as well as the social and cultural context in which they emerged; they will be called to provide answers in an interactive/digital way to the questions of Plangona (an ancient doll) and – who knows – they might even meet one… 
Action, knowledge and imagination are the ingredients that make up our museum educational programme.

C. “Many journeys… one Europe” 
Europe speaks many languages and it has a lot to say! Where did her journey begin and what has she given us besides her name?  
A museum educational programme that brings students into contact with our close, as well as our distant European neighbours. Through narration, video, digital interaction and constructions: images and people, cultures so different yet so similar, are pleasantly entangled in a game of search and knowledge.  
Get ready! Where would you like to travel? 
D. “A day in an old classroom” 
In our Museum’s authentic, traditional classroom, students will discover and get to know the old school, the teachers, the lessons and games of another time through sight, touch and participating in interactive practices.  
The old school classroom environment, pictures, videos and objects help children learn experientially. They can compare, create, participate and gain a complete picture and experience of how school life was in Greece in the past. 
E. “A suitcase filled with Christmas customs” (available from November 20) 
Who is Santa Claus really? What does a boat have to do with Christmas? What are “koutsouna” and “rugatsaria”? Search and find out, play and learn, discover and create with customs, filling your own suitcase. Christmas tunes are interwoven with local dialects and carols from all over  
Greece. An interactive cultural heritage game with our homeland’s Christmas customs.  
*All programmes are based on the school’s curriculum and they have an experiential nature, special games and alternative ways. In addition, they are suitable for children with learning disabilities. *All health protection measures are followed.
