Family Travel – The whole Family to the Museum!

This year the Museum “Pokrovsky Cathedral” has prepared an exciting journey for participants aged 8-11 and their parents.

Why is the Intercession Cathedral a cathedral and not a church? Why did the old locks have many keys? How can you learn to read tiles and murals on the walls to find out the age of the cathedral parts? Participants will receive answers to these and other questions by taking part in the “Family Travel”.

“The Moscow State United Museum-Reserve invites boys and girls, as well as their parents, to take part in the inter-museum program“ Family travel: the whole family to the museum ”. This project is being held in our museum for the fourth time. This year, young guests will have an exciting journey with the guide “Why is the brownie sad?” on the Kolomenskoye Peasant’s Estate (Ethnographic Center, the nearest metro station “Kolomenskoye”). During the trip, you will visit a real Russian hut. Find out how it works. And you will also find answers to the following questions: what is a svetlitsa? Where is the basement? What did the Kolomna peasants do and what was their nickname?

To participate in the program, you need to buy a regular entrance ticket to the Ethnographic Center at the box office, then receive a free Traveler’s Passport, a game guide and parting words from the museum staff in the exhibition. You can start your journey from any museum participating in the thematic route “Everything flows, everything changes?”

For two months, the Moscow United Museum-Reserve will turn into a territory for exciting family travels through the labyrinths of history. The travel game “The whole family to the museum” started on September 22 and will run until November 11. Every Saturday and Sunday, parents with children are invited to the museum. A game guide with assignments, pictures, funny stories and curious facts has been prepared for young guests. He will guide visitors through the expositions, help to find answers to questions.
Family Travel is a large-scale urban inter-museum program for the whole family. Over 20 city museums will take part in it. This year, the game guides are divided into three thematic routes: for kids 5-7 years old “An outlandish story in seven parts”, for children 8-11 years old route “Museum Oddities”, for teenagers from 12 to 14 years old route “On Freedom” … In the last of them the museum-reserve is presented.

On the male side of the Palace of Tsar Alexei Mikhailovich, a route of the same name is organized for children 12-14 years old. Participants will be asked to reflect on topical questions: what is freedom, what are the limits of personal freedom, what is the difference between physical freedom and spiritual freedom?

A fascinating journey through the Palace will give both young visitors and their parents the opportunity to get acquainted with the reconstructed interiors of the 17th century, historical events from the times of the first Romanov Tsars, as well as see unique exhibits from the funds of one of the oldest museums-reserves in Moscow.
You can become a member of the family trip by purchasing a regular entrance ticket to the museum. Each project participant receives a Passport with travel maps and a game guide. All young travelers, according to the established tradition, will receive small commemorative awards.

The project “Family travel: the whole family to the museum” was organized in 2008 with the participation of the Center for Museum Development and with the support of the Moscow Department of Culture. This year, family travel includes two programs: main and parallel. The parallel program involves not only museums, but also libraries that have prepared family programs, exhibitions, master classes.
