Children learn by doing at this interactive museum in the Flaminio district north of the historic centre. The pavilion resembles a small town containing a supermarket, bank, post office, fire station, recycling point, vegetable garden and other “exhibits” where children can explore and experiment at their own pace and according to their own inclinations. There is also a programme of temporary exhibitions, workshops and animated readings and it is possible to organise birthday parties on the premises. The museum operates a timed ticketing system with visits lasting 1 hour 45 minutes. Booking is compulsory at weekends, on public holidays and during the school holidays.

This museum is better for younger children, but my older children ages 11 and 9 enjoyed themselves too. (Jane)
