Learn in the museum
KAMU Espoo City Museum’s learning services offer a multi-sensory and cross-disciplinary peek at the lives of the people of the past. The museum units around Espoo offer learners of different ages something to watch, experience and touch. The museum has also produced interesting digital content tailored to schools.
KAMU invites day-care, family day-care and student groups to visit the museum!
Supporting the teaching at schools, visits can easily be combined with various subjects. The Espoo City Museum family includes
KAMU at Exhibition Centre WeeGee
Glims Farmstead Museum
Pentala Archipelago Museum
Villa Museum Villa Rulludd
Lagstad School Museum
Explore city museum tours for schools on museum websites or in the Learn in Museum brochure and select one or more visits per year for your group. KAMU Espoo City Museum’s services for schools are free for all early childhood education units, comprehensive schools and groups of upper secondary school students. Teachers can explore exhibitions for free in order to prepare for the museum visit of their class by showing their OAJ card.
You should prepare a visit to the museum in advance with the group and share background information about the exhibition – why we are going to the museum and what we will see there. During the museum visit, it is important for the teacher to keep the group together.
Learning materials online
Explore historical sites with the help of KAMU’s mobile guides in the classroom or independently at the site. The mobile guides provide information about the Pentala Archipelago Museum, Villa Museum Villa Rulludd, Träskända Manor Park and the district of Tapiola as well as a guide for the sites related to the 1918 Civil War in Leppävaara. You can explore selected items of the City Museum’s collections through the Finna.fi search service. Or are you looking for materials for group work on lessons? Or how to teach children to find information safely? The Finna classroom service brings together material packages customised for the curricula of comprehensive school and upper secondary school, which can be used in teaching, for example, history, social studies, Finnish, literature and art.
