Implemented development and services of the EU project supporting teachers’ work and public education as such, carried out between 2017 and 2020 by MOKK and its museum partners will be presented.

In addition to accredited free of charge training courses, methodological books and model projects implemented by the collaboration of schools and museums, teachers can receive information about a museum education database called Museums à la carte (renewed within the project), which makes planning museum visits of school groups easy.

The museum based events introducing the colourful world of museums are normally closed down by an exclusive guided tour of the museum, or a demonstration of museum education.

The campaign was ceremonially launched at the Petőfi Literary Museum on the 10th September. The opening ceremony included a talk of writer and secondary school teacher Pál Nényei.
