Through Play to Heritage
A joint campaign by Slovene museums and galleries for children and families takes place in the Week of the Child at the beginning of October. During this time, MGLC offers free admission to view the exhibitions, discussions, games and workshops.
SOCREA (SOcializing and CREAting) is a print art workshop for children, families and adults, where small prints are created under the guidance of an education curator and a master printer. During the festive season, holiday greeting cards are produced.
