If you are traveling in Rome with small children, you will find plenty of fascinating activities and attractions that will fill your time with great pleasure. Among these, the Explora Children’s Museum is considered one of the main and most popular attractions for families with little ones, and as such it attracts many visitors every day.
Before visiting the museum, you should take into account that although it is a particularly popular tourist site, the main activities that take place there are conducted in the Italian language only and are not translated into English.
However, there are quite a few additional sessions and facilities on the site that do not require language skills that your little ones can enjoy, accompanied by you of course. In addition, since the museum attracts many locals, it is recommended to buy the entrance tickets in advance and thus save waiting in line.
During the visit to the museum, the children will learn in an entertaining and interesting way fascinating facts of life that we adults take for granted – various natural and scientific phenomena such as attraction and gravity, water and wind currents, as well as topics related to the quality of the environment.
All of these are presented in the form of interactive games that allow children to learn while having a real experience.
In addition to these, the museum has various spaces that simulate daily activities from the world of adults such as shopping at the supermarket, a news studio, a bank, and much more. These allow the children to learn the roles of the various craftsmen they meet every day such as the banker. The news anchor, the porter, and the doctor, and they also learn a little about the way the world works economically during the activities they receive payment using virtual currency and “buy” objects with it.
It is recommended to end the tour with a light meal at the cafe or restaurant next to the museum, and if you are in a good mood, you can go with the little ones to the museum’s toy and book store, where a large selection of games, puzzles, and books will be waiting for you.
Recommended length of time for a tour of the museum: about two hours.
Other activities that take place there are various workshops that can be updated on the museum’s official website.
