Classrooms at the museum will provide information to students for the different periods of the development of Ruse and the region. The envisaged activities are part of project “Cultural education: Masks of History, The Tower of Cherven and Calliope’s Kitchen” implemented by Association “Friends of the Museum” under Programme “Knowledge and Growth” of Ruse Free Spirit City Foundation with the support of  Econt Foundation in partnership with Regional Museum of History – Ruse, Children’s Theatre Group “Kamila”, Primary School “Lyuben Karavelov”, Secondary School “Hristo Botev”, National School of Arts “Prof. Veselin Stoyanov” and Association “Equilibrium”.


A total of 48 students from Primary School “Lyuben Karavelov”, Secondary School “Hristo Botev”, National School of Arts “Prof. Veselin Stoyanov” – Ruse and Association “Equilibrium” will attend the classrooms. The classes will take place at the museum and will include theoretical and practical (interactive) part, developed together with specialists from Regional Museum of History – Ruse. The training aims to help children acquire lasting knowledge for the historical past in a fun way, adapted for children’s perceptions.


Classroom “Masks of History” introduces children to the Roman Age. Children will learn more about Roman deities, by making masks, as well as about the armaments of Roman legionnaires, by exploring adapted children’s sets of helmets, armour, shields and spears.


During classroom “The Tower of Cherven” students will learn about the Middle Ages. They will learn about the structure of the Medieval town through a book of fortresses and a puzzle designed specifically for Cherven. Through practical games and activities (weaving with looms), children will learn details about the crafts practiced by medieval people.


“Calliope’s Kitchen” tells about the period of Modernity. The young guests of the museum will learn about the manifestations of modern times and urban culture at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century. Children will use jigsaw puzzles of  ladies' and men's clothing and visual texts for the typical dishes of the ethnic groups living in Ruschuk.


After the completion of the individual educational models, a quiz will be conducted in each of the schools, with the participation of children who visited the classrooms. The teams – winners from the different schools will participate in a final quiz at the Museum of History.


The first class room, dedicated to the Roman Age, will start in the beginning of next week.
