The museum offers educational programs for school groups primarily in connection with our exhibitions, but also on the museum grounds and on-board some of our vessels. Teaching schedules are adapted according to grade level and educational goals for the visiting students. Offers vary by season and exhibit availability. Tours of the museum may be adapted to specific themes on request. We can also adapt the teaching schedule to your specific needs.
