Aim: causing curiosity and appreciation
End of the experience

Intentions & Processes
The City museum, set in a square also called “the city living room” is a place to meet and exchange ideas and opinions around the history and the many curiosities that a perfect seaside city can give!
It could be a shelter from rain during a sudden storm, a place of play and discovery for children and a place of study for researchers. A museum for everyone, that can improve its accessibility to better describe itself and be even more of a City Museum.
Improving the accessibility of the museum for a target group of children aged 8 to 10 accompanied by their families.
The goal is to make live the museum experience in a playful way, through a passport that invites to learn about six stories that have characterized Ancona city history.
Once the route has been completed, the passport will be issued by the museum to reward small visitors.
