“The chief aim of Interpretation is not instruction, but provocation”

Freeman Tilden

Interpreters have an important place in Exploration Children's Museum, apart from its collections and exhibits. Interpreters are our people who develop and deliver interpretive educational programs.

Our role is to prepare an environment that will provide children with ideas and motivations to become active and creative. Being the connection between children and their environment, our interpreters respect child's initiatives and personal action, encourage active involvement and cooperation.

Our interpreters follow the basic principles of interpretation of cultural heritage, aiming to:

• process objects which are intimate and attractive to children and their families

• stimulate  interest for further discovery and learning

• provide the necessary information without teaching and guided tours

• discover stories and people behind information and objects

• approach each subject multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary 

• engage children to expand their knowledge by their experiences and allow them to construct a personal understanding based on these experiences
