One Day At...
Our One Day At... program is designed to take the best of a visit to a specific place, aiming to ensure a relaxed and focused visit. We start the day visiting a main attraction (usually a Museum or cultural center) and exploring its educational resources. Hands-on activities or workshops are actively selected whenever available. Selected visiting spots are usually near a garden so that we can explore and learn more about it. It also serves as a purpose to play some games and use some of the kids' stored energy... Picnic lunch is included! The program may include access through subway or tram, which gives us the opportunity to discover the thematic decoration of the subway stations and other subjects on the way...
