Aims and activities of the organisation:

Exploration Children’s Museum is the first mobile children’s museum in Greece and one of the first mobile European children’s museums in 21st century. Exploration travels everywhere with our luggage, exhibits, collections and interpreters, giving visitors the opportunity to explore and discover the culture through play! Meeting the learning needs and interests of children and families, we create transformational learning experiences focusing on our cultural, natural and technological heritage. We offer children the opportunity to understand and explore both themselves and their world through mobile interactive exhibits and hands-on activities by creating new cultural experiences. Motivating the learning process as an "experience", we encourage visitors to understand objects and meanings by connecting them to their own life and their own experiences. We provide equal opportunities for exploration and discovery, encouraging children to learn in a way that is close enough to their own nature. Exploration is dedicated to activating the "creative spark" of exploration and play, by creating a safe and welcoming environment where everyone can participate equally. As a mobile cultural center for children and their families, we encourage curiosity and imagination, promote play and creativity, enhance informal and lifelong learning.
