Children's Museum

Local name: Le Musée de Enfants

Children's Museum is an institution conducting various educational activities, founded in 1975 by Kathleen Lippens. On 600 m2 of space, exhibitions have been created with dozens of interactive stands that develop manual and social skills of the youngest recipients.

All the educational and educational activities of Le Musée de Enfants stem from the idea contained in Chinese folk wisdom: "I listen and forget. I can see and remember. I do and understand. " At the time of creation, Le Musée de Enfants was an avant-garde place on a European scale. From the 90s of the 20th century, it sold the education model it created, including to Greece, Portugal and France.

The idea of founding Le Musée de Enfants was born in the early 1970s, when Kathleen Lippens studied psychology at Harvard University. She then established cooperation with the Boston Children's Museum. Observing American animators of children's play and education, she decided to move them to her native country.
