Hey, let’s go to Mongolia! Notes of a City Wizard
Interactive guided tours and museum pedagogy sessions for all ages in the Yurts and Monasteries exhibition
For kindergarten and elementary school children
Interactive exhibition tours are always playful, constantly involving the children. At the beginning of the big journey, participants all receive a bag with Mongolian objects. During the journey, we see how Mongolia was established, we play out the everyday life of the Mongolians and listen to the sound of the horse fiddle. We make a horse that is decorated with the “Csintámani” gemstone, so it becomes a magic horse and takes us wherever we want. We visit the land of shamans, and after overcoming many obstacles we arrive at the chief shaman, where we perform a shamanic dance and then lie down under the stars. While we graze our horses in the parking lot, we also visit a monastic school, where Buddha is our teacher. Finally, we get to know the motifs of the Mongolian flag, and we also make a flag together as a farewell.
For 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th graders
The interactive exhibition tour is varied, so we can constantly maintain the children’s attention. At the beginning of the big journey, participants all receive a bag with Mongolian objects. During the journey, we see how Mongolia was established, we play out the everyday life of a Mongolian family and listen to the sound of the horse fiddle. We try on the masks that Buddhist monks wear in their religious ceremonies to ward off their enemies. Then we visit the chief shaman, about whom we learn a lot of interesting facts. We imagine what a shaman might be like and then create them - using various interesting materials. Finally, we decipher the ancient motif system of the Mongolian flag.
For 7th, 8th graders and high school students
The interactive guided tour for students is also different from a usual tour, with various intervening actions, the goal is to make their visit to the museum a real experience. We work with the ancient motif system of the Mongolian flag, everyone creates their own individual composition.
Duration of the session: 90 minutes. Price: HUF 900/person. Free for accompanying teachers.
