It is the first popularizing institution of education and science in Hungary, which wants to share the Egyptology with kids on based of experiences, to motivate them to learn. Our institute opened its doors in Budapest on September 20th, 2012, and it is waiting its visitors with first permanent program called "Secrets of the Pharaohs" which was prepared under participation of Egyptologists, museologists, and restorers.
Mission of our institute is to fundamentally change the attitude of children to learning and knowledge on base of cognizance.
What can experience children with us?
Our animators lead the children through three Egyptian scenes in period costumes within 60-minute program. This also helps to strengthen not an everyday experience learned in the school. In particular places the children can experience e.g. the ceremony and ritual of pharaoh mummification, as well. The extraordinary, unforgettable program is compiled thanks many months of hard work of the restorers. The program was compiled in co-operation of teachers, so we can offer experiences for all age-groups. The exhibits and the program itself are in Hungary the fruit of more than six months of dedicated work of experts. Egyptologists, museologists, restorers, and educators have struggled to create the contemporary experience. Our institute participated in a number of similar projects abroad, and we succeed to dedicate to children more than ten thousand hours rich in experiences.
