On a daily basis the National Archaeological Museum of Taranto combines the scientific and research work it does on its collections with an array of targeted activities aimed at enhancing the value of its items and at providing teaching and training experiences for all types of public thus becoming a vital and inclusive hub which dispenses emotions while communicating culture.

The Educational Service of the Museum works together with the Culture Ministry’s concessionaire for additional services, Nova Apulia  (entrusted with the task of conducting guided tours and laboratories) to plan its offering of cultural activities. The Service also designs and implements workshops as well as advanced themed and educational itineraries of different duration to further expand the cultural offer of the Museum while ensuring the best response to the different needs of the public.

WITH CHILDREN AND TEENAGERS

The MArTA is an ideal place to spend time with your family. With its dedicated areas for children along the exhibition itineraries and the “PlayMArTA” educational cards, the museum helps children and youngsters approach the main archaeological themes on display in a playful way.
