This material is designed for the use of teachers and other adults who work with children and youth. It can be adapted for pupils of various ages. You can explore the exhibition and do the exercises before or after visiting the museum. The museum exercises provide ideas for discussion, and the questions are designed to suit groups of children. We do not recommend doing the writing or drawing exercises in the museum halls due to the large numbers of visitors.

You can open up larger images of the works of art by clicking on them. You can download the images onto your own computer ahead of time and print them out if so desired.

All teachers bringing groups to the museum are advised to read the instructions on visiting the museum.
