The Roman Empire at the Vatican Museums
The Vatican Museums contain a unique historical and archaeological heritage. It is a special place where some of the most important finds of ancient Rome are kept. An archaeologist will take your class on a visit aimed at discovering these finds: statues, sarcophagi, and objects of daily use. It will not only be a matter of admiring this enormous heritage but also of deciphering the history behind each object: a mythological story, a special event, a recurrence, a celebration and much more. This is a visit designed for groups of students, who will have their own “archaeologist’s notebook” in which there will be riddles, clues and games to complete during the visit.
How will the visit be structured?
Each child will receive their own “archaeologist's notebook”. We will visit some of the halls of the Vatican Museums stopping at pre-established stations where each child will get to solve clues through riddles, games or looking for hidden objects. We have organized original and thematic games, designed for learning Roman history through the exhibits in the museum. Each activity can be complemented with an in-depth study in the classroom, to be done after the “treasure hunt”. For this reason, each student will get to bring their own notebook home.
We recommend the presence of at least one adult (teacher or parent) per 10 pupils, so that we can coordinate the activities in the best way with the archaeological guide who will accompany the class.
