Greek War of Independence: Through the eyes of a historian

Exploration Children's Museum welcomes the new school year with a brand-new program for the senior classes of the Primary School. This year, Greece celebrates the 200th anniversary of the beginning of the Greek War of Independence of 1821, and Exploration invites teachers and students to become historians and explore one of the most important facts in Greek History!

How did the Revolution of 1821 begin? What battles determined its course? Who took the lead? 

And most importantly… how do we know about all of this?

The new educational program of Museum " Greek War of Independence: Through the eyes of a historian", gives children the opportunity to discover the profession of the historian and recognize the basic stages of doing a historical research. By studying all the important facts of history, a historian tries to interpret the role of these facts in human evolution. But how does a historian do a research?

Through Museum's collections, children read books and texts, observe objects and paintings, discuss and conduct their own historical research. They interpret the events of History and discover the relationship between the past and our present life. Participating in an interactive history game, we create our timeline for the Greek Revolution of 1821.

Exploration will start traveling to schools from the beginning of October.

For more information and reservations, please contact the Museum’s Education Department via mail or by phone to jointly organize a safe and enjoyable museum experience at your school.
