Children in the Museum Today and Tomorrow

14:00 — 18:30
Cross-Sectional Program

St. Petersburg and Hamburg have been twin cities for over 60 years. The conference continues the tradition of cooperation in the museum sphere and aims to promote international exchange of experience among representatives of the museums and universities, as well as dialogue between all those who seek to expand knowledge about the latest technologies applied in the museums.

The topics of the reports reflect the issues raised by the specialists within the walls of museums and universities, as well as people employed in other professional fields:

  • How to convey to the child interest and love for the artistic heritage?
  • What the museum can learn about its visitors and how to build a dialogue for sustainable cooperation?
  • Can digital technologies be useful if, for some reason, it is impossible to visit the museum?
  • How to combine technical education with the work in a museum?
