Born of ancient times, the Olympics is a unique international event that remains true to its core values. The Games and the various themes they represent can be combined with school curricula to encourage cross- and multi-disciplinary learning.
The Olympic Museum supports teachers in this endeavour by providing specific teaching tools that take on themes such as the human body and health, science and technology, civic duty, and art and creativity. So, whether it's visiting the exhibitions with your class or just looking for classroom activities, the Olympic Museum has you covered.
Just like a team needs a coach, so does a class. Our coaches will accompany pupils throughout their visit and adapt their tours to the age and expectations of the group
• Educational areas: The Gym’ and the Studio
Educational areas give teachers a chance to explore exhibition themes with their pupils. A wide range of activities are offered such as workshops, experiments, discussions, films, games and more! Two such areas are available:
The Gym’ takes pupils back in time to the stadiums of old where the original Olympians would hone their bodies and minds. The activities carried out in this area relate to permanent museum exhibitions and are easily tailored so that participants can work with Olympic themes in the context of their daily life.
The Studio gives a real TV studio vibe. Sport through images is the central theme here and a wide range of both still and animated sporting pictures are used in a variety of ways.
With suggestions of tours and activities to do inside the exhibitions are availaible (upon reservation).
