Children's Day programme at the National Archaeological Museum

In line with the aim to meet the need for knowledge of the youths in Bulgaria, the National Archaeological Institute with Museum at BAS focuses in preparing a programme to celebrate the Universal Children's Day, June 1.

Is there life in the Black Sea? How different underwater creatures live in symbiotic relationships? Which is more dangerous – the shark to humans or vice versa? These questions will be answered by the Bulgarian photographer and underwater diver Mihail Zaimov in his lecture "Underwater stories" looking at big and little underwater creatures.

The lecture is prepared for children aged 7-12 and will start at 11.00 am in the Temporary exhibitions hall. The entrance is free but given that the places are limited.

During the exhibition "Do you know this game? Games and toys in Antiquity" NAIM organized an educational programme intended for children aged 6 to 12 years old. The organizers' aim was to present the world of children in ancient Greek and Roman periods in an accessible and interesting for the modern children way. The "Creative Workshop" intended for children aged 6 to 8 years old was one of the initiatives within the exhibition. The children were able to colour the plaster copies of the antique toys displayed in the exhibition (dolls, horses, roosters, etc.) and to make dolls’ clothes. It was held on May 26, 2014 at NAIM. On June 1 their works will be exhibited in the Temporary exhibitions hall at NAIM together with the antique artefacts.

On June 1 the admission to the National Archaeological Museum is free for all children.
