SERVICES FOR SCHOOLS AND NURSERY SCHOOLS
SERVICES AT THE MUSEUM
The Espoo City Museum’s services for schools and nursery schools offer a multifaceted glimpse into the past. In our museums throughout Espoo learners of all ages can experience history by looking, touching and trying out.
There are five museums in the Espoo City Museum family
Familiarize yourself with our services for schools and nursery schools and pick one or several visits a year for your group. The services are offered free of charge for groups of pupils or students in nursery, comprehensive, vocational and upper secondary schools.
ESPOO CULTURAL PATH
Espoo City Museums services for schools are part of the City of Espoo Cultural Path “KULPS!”.
Culture Call makes art and culture part of early childhood education in Espoo. Art and culture professionals visit day-care centres to perform or guide activities planned for children. In addition, there are Culture Calls for educators, during which art and cultural actors train staff in utilising the opportunities provided by art in early childhood education, also outside of cultural visits.
FAMILIARIZE YOURSELF WITH THE PAST ONLINE
Get to know a historical sight or location from your classroom or on the spot with the mobile guides of the Espoo City Museum. In the Museum Without Walls service you’ll find guides to the Pentala Archipelago Museum, Villa Museum Villa Rulludd, The Träskända Manorial Park and stories of local people from Tapiola, as well as significant locations in Leppävaara during the civil war of 1918. The guide to the Villa Museum Villa Rulludd contains a quiz for comprehensive schools, made by grade 7 pupils. You can familiarize yourself with the online mobile guides on either your computer or portable device. The mobile guide has a GPS-tracker to help you find the right places if you’re on site.
