Education

Join our educational activities and set off on a voyage of discovery through the rich cultures of Asia. There is something here for all ages!

School & Learning Museum of Far Eastern Antiquities

Our activities aimed at the younger school children involve using all senses in addition to a lot of discussions, fairy tales and myths. With the older students, we focus more on philosophical issues, the development of Chinese high cultures, the kingdoms of logographic scripts or the international trade between Europe and Asia. In addition, the students are encouraged to transform their experiences into creativeness. Our aim is for everyone to have an inspiring and engaging meeting with Asia that will generate an endless flow of creativity!

Most of our programs consist of an educational guided tour as well as creative activities in our studio but it is also possible to book a guided tour separately. Our guided tours cover a number of school subjects such as history, religious studies, philosophy, social science, modern languages, geography, imagery, art and culture.

Please let us know if you have any special requirements or requests as we can arrange guided tours and activities to suit your specific school class or group. Our collections and varying exhibitions offer many interesting themes for education. Major exhibitions include Chinese, Japanese and Korean collections of cultural history.
A warm welcome!
