Departments Educational Workshop and Playroom
Located on the first floor, with a gaily-decorated workspace, the playroom can when necessary make use of a smaller room from which there is one of the finest views of the medieval defensive tower called Popov toranj. Educational work goes hand in hand with all the museum’s activities. The workshop brings together children of school and pre-school ages, and persons with special needs, at least once a week, according to a set programmes or every day according to agreement. In play, the children acquire fundamental knowledge about the city, make models of the most important buildings, build an imaginary Children’s Museum, or perhaps draw in the Museum’s display. Every year at Easter and Christmas, cards are made, as well as seasonal decorations, gifts and so on.
