Guidelines of our operations

The museum education activities of the Serlachius Museums consist of planning and implementing insightful teaching that complements the exhibitions of the museums.

The museum pedagogy strives to offer versatile viewpoints to museums and their exhibitions at the same time taking into account the needs of different visitors. The aim is to make the museums accessible and interactive.

The museums’ operations and the exhibitions have been planned and constructed so that people visiting them would be able to find new building material for their own thoughts.

In the exhibitions of the Serlachius Museum Gustaf, the visitor can use all his or her senses. The museum visitor is activated to experience the exhibitions and to learn by touching, listening to, seeing and doing. The basic idea of the workshop operations is learning by doing.

Alongside the touching exhibitions the museums offer different kinds of guided tours, experiental programme services and events that stem from the present way of life. Applying drama as means of storytelling teaches and offers new lines of thinking. The pedagogic operations include also publications and online services.

Art school Gösta is a website that encourages getting acquainted with art. It offers more detailed information on different phenomena in art and opportunity to experience and do things on your own.

Museum pedagogy behind all activities

The schools are the main target group of the museums’ education programme: teachers, pupils and students. On the other hand, museum pedagogic planning influences all programme services of the museums. The museum pedagogic baseline has been taken into account in planning the service products regardless of whether they have been meant for children, adults or senior citizens.

The education programme take also the availability of the services as well as special visitor groups into account.
