The MAS takes its educational role very seriously, which is why it has devised special tours tailor-made for schools. These enable you to experience the MAS on an accompanied, interactive visit.
Your class will discover the MAS with an experienced guide and interactively. Each floor of the MAS has its own guided tours and workshops. It's up to you to choose what best suits your students. In addition to guided tours for children and young people, we offer formulas for teaching adults, and the MAS can be an excellent complement to teacher training.

The educational formulas of the MAS

The different stories told by the MAS constitute a healthy intellectual visit for all ages and are also a solid basis for personalized activities.
The covered stories often go beyond the curriculum, which is why the visit to the MAS is an unforgettable experience. Offers are interactive and can be adapted to each age group.
