All the Museum’s activities for the Christmas period

A museum to discovered, many proposals for learning while having fun, but also new visit itineraries: on 8 December the programme for the Christmas holiday period starts and will continue until Sunday 7 January 2024.

The first stop is a series of new guided tours enabling visitors to explore the Museum through specific interpretive lenses. On the Feast of the Immaculate Conception (8, 9 and 10 December), the new proposal to see the start is ‘Welcome to the Anthropocene’, the visit tour narrating the relationship between man and nature, spanning from its origins to the current crisis, encompassing resource exploitation, biodiversity crisis, and climate change.

Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 December will be the time to stop by the Museum for many different engaging activities such as: animated reading for families amidst the animals in the Gallery of Mammals, the science show ‘The Science of Toys’ and various educational activities catered to different age groups starting from 3 years. All educational activities require prior reservation and take place in the teaching room. However, some are continuously available along the museum route for those preferring direct exploration.

On Saturday evening, an exceptional event awaits you – an opportunity to immerse yourself in the music of the Nova Symphonia Patavina. The journey commences in the renowned Hall of Palms, continues among the great vertebrates and sea animals, and culminates in the ambience of Oceania realms. A musical journey accompanied by the Museum guides, to fully appreciate every place and every minute of the evening.

The schedule continues with events every weekend and nearly daily from 26 December to 7 January, alternating between the visits ‘Welcome to the Anthropocene” and ‘Evolution-Revolution’, narrating the continuous changes of the Planet and living beings.

All activities are included in the Museum entrance fee, except for the evening concert priced 7 euros. Cross-thematic guided tours can be reserved through the Reservation Centre. Detailed information about the activities on 16 and 17 December will be published on Tuesday 5 December.
