Hello, Museum!

Let's crack open the door to the incredibly fascinating and vast world of the museum. We'll find out why people need museums and what kinds they can be. Then, in a playful manner, we'll explore what exactly museums keep, how all these items are named, and how they make their way into the museum. Helping us in this adventure will be the museum exhibits, which have been waiting for years to meet with the little guests of Narva Castle.

    If I Were a Knight

    How about feeling like a resident of an ancient castle - a brave knight living by strict rules and adhering to all the canons of the knightly code? Would you be able to wear all the necessary armor? Would you understand the complex system of heraldic signs and symbols? What would your faithful horse be called? We invite young participants to experience the joys and challenges of knightly life during our museum program.

      Narva - River and City

      Is Narva a city or a river? It's both! Let's explore how the most water-rich river in Estonia influenced the development of the region and the formation of its namesake city. We'll dive into the times of bustling trade that took place through the city's waterways, and find out which goods were popular here. Then, we'll learn how people have used the river over time and how they have impacted it.

        Legends of Our Region

        Where is the Horsehide Fortress located? Who is Peeter from Peeterristi? What secrets do the walls of Narva Castle hide? We'll dive into the mysterious past of our city, discover the legends that have been told here for many years, and ponder which of these legendary fictions might hold a grain of truth.

          Estonian and Russian Folk Games

          What do children of all cultures and continents have in common? Of course, the desire to play! Thus, two cultures - Estonian and Russian, living side by side for centuries, have closely intertwined with each other. In the program, we'll find out if folk games in Estonian and Russian cultures are similar and, of course, we'll play various games and learn to sing folk songs.

            Clocks and Time

            Are clocks a luxury item or a necessity in life? There are countless types of clocks, from sundials and water clocks to the most sophisticated modern devices. We'll explore the evolution of this well-known accessory, look for clocks in urban space, make our own clocks, and learn to tell time not just by the numbers on an electronic display.

              School 300 Years Ago

              How to write a letter without using a computer, phone, or pen? How to solve a complex problem without a calculator? Why did teachers need peas? Which foreign languages did children have to learn 300 years ago? We'll find answers to these and other questions in our museum lesson.

                What is Alchemy and Who Were the Alchemists

                If you've never found the philosopher's stone, deciphered an ancient encrypted recipe for making gold, or crafted an amulet with an image of a primary element, then we definitely await you at our new program! We'll also talk about the very serious science that developed thanks to alchemy, and discuss what future doctors study. And, of course, there will be a real experiment!
