The Byzantine and Christian Museum designs educational material and makes it available to visitors free of charge in an effort to enhance the educational experience of both its permanent and temporary exhibitions.
To date, it has published a series of printed guided tours along with educational leaflets for younger visitors which complement the Museum’s educational activities – each leaflet tackles a different theme.
Visitors can make use of:
• The leaflet entitled “Byzantine things”, which proposes a route through the permanent exhibition. The route includes eight stop-off points in different sections and is designed to bring the visitor into contact with different aspects of Byzantine culture through artefacts ranging widely in terms of function, materials, provenance and period.
• The educational leaflet entitled “The art of conservation or the conservation of art”. The leaflet (only in Greek language) was designed for the temporary exhibition entitled “Masters: Fotis Zachariou, Antonis Glinos”, though its first part can also be used independently with reference to the Museum’s permanent exhibition, where it introduces the visitor to the conservation of antiquities and art-works.
• The paper-cutting and painting sheets focusing on the Nativity. The sheets draw on the Museum’s collections for their subject-matter and were designed for the annual Christmas Workshop for Children. They can also be used independently to create Christmas cards and decorations.
