The museum of Veria

In Greece, the educational and communicational role played by museums is ineffective, especially where those children who must be approached in a special way are concerned. Recently certain Greek museums took the initiative to introduce educational programes for children. Their target is to transform the museum into a place of education, recreation and culture. This article proposes that the Archaeological Museum of Veroia should play a role in the education of children in the last three grades of elementary school. Adoption of the proposal will enable the children to approach everyday life, the artefacts and asthetics of the periods exhibited in the museum and, inspired by them, become true to themselves.
