Mini Guidebooks. Umbrian Museums as told by young children

The project involved local primary schools in the writing of a “mini guidebook” for young children of the same age that visit the local museum. The aim was twofold: to involve local classes in the appropriating of their local heritage, and to support the public of children as a specific visitor target. 
After numerous meetings between the schools and the museum and careful editorial work, ten guide-leaflets were produced, in which the participants illustrated and told the story of their own museum through their own eyes. The mini guidebooks, with their original, recognizable graphics, all have a similar format but with different contents according to the museum. The leaflets are handed out free of charge to young visitors as a key to the understanding of each collection.

Number of participants: 17 classes for a total of 293 pupils

The project was organized with the contribution of the Region of Umbria.
