In a history workshop at the Kadriorg Art Museum, the exciting past was revived.

16.06.2016

In the middle of June, an art workshop was organised at the Kadriorg Art Museum, in Tallinn, for children from substitute homes and safe houses: first, the children were introduced to the castle and then they took part in a workshop, the children were also able to participate in art detective and fashion fad programmes.

The excursion in the castle, or the art detective programme, was organised in an interesting and playful way and was also highly educational. While solving puzzles, children learned about history, costumes, caring for paintings, and many other exciting things.

In the workshop, the children turned a matchbox into a detective’s badge; in the fashion fad programme they were charmed by old dresses and then there was a small fashion show where children could try on fancy clothes and imagine themselves living in the past.

From the museum day, the children received a lot of new knowledge about history and learned polite behaviour and cooperation, among other things. The children saw that museums are not necessarily boring places, but spunky history workshops that make you think about how we have reached the present day, what has changed or remained the same throughout the centuries.
