Action Museum Workshop
Action Museum Workshop
elementary and secondary schools
The Action Museum Workshop offers workshops for children, adolescents and adults.
The workshops are a proposal for joint activity based on the personal, active and creative participation of all participants. Particular topics are inspired by selected historical events, elements of the Royal Castle’s interiors, and art exhibits, which all serve as a starting point for personal research conducted through various means: visual, musical, theatrical, and others. Classes are conducted by an experienced team of staff members of the Royal Castle, sometimes supplemented by invited specialists.
WORKSHOPS FOR ORGANIZED GROUPS
(primary and secondary SCHOOLS)
The themes of the workshops are based on the permanent exhibitions of the Castle. We can also conduct our workshops according to the topics you propose, if the conditions at the Castle permit. We can also provide classes in English, French and German about temporary exhibitions.
The workshops are conducted Monday through Friday.
They usually last 1 1/2 to 2 hours
cost:140 zl. per class (Polish language version)
200 zł. per class (foreign language versions – English, French or German)
Tracking Polish History is the basic workshop proposed for foreign students. It includes a discussion about Polish history, a short lecture on the same subject and a guided tour of the Castle to illustrate the most important topics.
If asked, we are ready to prepare various versions of the workshop, concentrating on a given time (Middle Ages, the Enlightenment, the pre-war period etc.) or a given subject (the king, the Polish parliament, a day with the royal court).
There are also a French and a German version of this workshop:
L’aigle et la fleur de lis
Wege und Umwege der polnischen Geschichte.
Here are some samples of what we propose for Polish classes:
- Looking into Europe
- The emblem and the coat of arms
- Can you find the Bible on Castle walls?
- Myths and Symbols
- The World of Islam
- Historical art techniques
- Straight from the press. Old graphic techniques
- As the Romans counted … The Roman system of writing numbers
