 In the teenagers’ eyes

Teens organize their own presentation of exhibits, through their own personal interests.

Groups of Teens visit during weekends, outside of their school schedule. The program depends upon the initiative of students and teachers involved.

Students choose their exhibits of predilection, record them and learn more about them. They organize them in their personal exhibition, using historic testimonies, literature, music and images etc and involving personal thoughts and sentiments. Video recording of the process, which they can then present to their own fellow students.

Once a year, the Museum opens its meeting hall for a presentation of the year’s creations.
