Exploration Children's Museum is administered by the cultural non-profit organization Cultural and Museum Education Hellenic Center which is based in the city of Heraklion, Crete. Having as a constitutive purpose the promotion of cultural and museum education, our vision is to create a cultural center for every child and ensure that children will always have a place to grow up, play and explore.

Responding to the new circumstances and understanding the needs of families in the COVID-19 crisis, Exploration remained committed to its mission and continued to offer high quality educational and cultural services, both online and live interpretations. Through a variety of activities, we succeeded in supporting families’ museum experiences even at home, while at the same time we managed to develop new explorations for parents and children in our city. Always stay safe, always keeping play!

Exploration needs your support now more than ever, to continue to cultivate our visitors' love of exploration! Your support directly affects our ability to provide diverse and qualitative cultural experiences, to research and explore new methods of museum education nand develop positive attitudes towards our cultural heritage.
