Museum Educational Programs in the Children’s Hospital: a New Chance for Social Services

The article presents the application of educational programs in the Children’s Hospital and the parameters of their planning. Museums through a systematic cooperation can very well offer alternative modes of social support and expression: the museum objects give the patients the possibility to release their sentiments in a symbolic language. The educational activities create for the sick a connection with the reality outside hospital and offer them protection from the dangerous self-isolation. The interaction with the museum’s personnel enriches the social contacts and contributes to the development of psychic and social skillfulness. Consequently, the activation of vehicles that transport experiences from the cultural space to the secluded hospital environment will add more quality to the life of the sick children and a new meaning in the field of our activities as well.
