Museums are one of the best learning places for children. It contributes to the formation and development of children’s sense of observation, logic, creativity and imagination. Children get to know about cultures, approaches to art, artists and artworks in the museums. They also acquire awareness of protecting cultural values. Experiences gained in learning environments outside of school have a positive effect on the children’s life. Museum Explorers is a 2-month museum program that will take place in two different museums.
In the museum explorers program, instead of answering existing questions, children will ask their own questions and find answers together. In each museum workshop, our teacher will gather children around a museum and exhibition-related approach, and they will think and produce accordingly.
Museum explorer children will be given an explorer bag which will contain the materials they need during the museum visit. Children will continue to use their materials for both of the workshops. Book your place now to join this adventure that will last for 2 months.

Gazhane (5th March)
As a result of a protracted battle and a multifaceted restoration project, the 130-year-old Hasanpaşa Gazhanesi was transformed into a new “living place” and moved to Istanbul. Müze Gazhane positions itself as a gathering place rather than merely a static “creative area.” With its new purpose, fresh energy that it distributes throughout the city, multipurpose areas of use, activities, and the transitivity that envelops the neighborhood with all of its components, it seeks to be an active public space, right in life. Incorporating the idea that everyone should have access to culture, the arts, and science, Museum Gazhane derives its transformative power from a framework that collaborates, updates the collective memory of the city, and embraces involvement.
Istanbul Modern (8th April)
Founded in 2004 as Turkey’s first museum of modern and contemporary art, Istanbul Modern is committed to sharing Turkey’s artistic creativity and cultural identity with art enthusiasts everywhere. Istanbul Modern’s collection exhibition shows the evolution and transformation of modern and contemporary art in Turkey as well as the international orientation of the museum’s acquisition. While discovering Turkish contemporary and modern art, we will also question the ways to create art other than painting.
