ALL ABOARD, LET'S SET SAIL TOGETHER! Workshops and visits for families with children
Activities for families with children at the Museum of Ancient Ships in Pisa
Workshops and visits for families with children at the Museo delle Navi Antiche in Pisa
Every Sunday at 15:30
Workshops and guided tours for children with our didactically trained archaeologists and museum tours for adults: a special proposal for families with children aged 7 and over.
While the little ones visit the museum, with its perfectly preserved ancient vessels, and take part in a beautiful educational workshop, their parents can in turn take part in the scheduled guided tour. A different workshop will be offered each week.
2 April → "Pastimes on board"
We will explore the rooms of the museum to discover the pastimes that passengers used to pass the time while sailing in antiquity, and then we will make and try out a "board game" with pawns and more...
8 April → "Waiting for Easter at the museum"
While waiting to unwrap the Easter egg, come and discover our museum. Together we will make spring-themed Easter decorations in clay, also using plants that have existed since ancient times.
16 April → "Lighting in Roman times".
When the light bulb did not exist, lighting was provided by small oil lamps made of ceramic or, rarely, metal. We discover how they worked and reproduce them with clay and bivalve moulds, modelled on those found during excavations.
23 April → "The paths of the sea
We will discover what ships transported, how cargo was organised and how the consignee recognised his goods among those loaded on board; we will reproduce on ceramic fragments the system of "labelling" cargo, identified thanks to painted or graffitied signs and inscriptions.
30 April →"Recycling in antiquity"
The ancients wasted nothing! Let us discover together the thousand lives of vases, from their journeys across the Mediterranean to their reuse, to learn from our most remote past a lesson that is also useful for the present.
