Football is a phenomenon that is loved the world over, and there can be no better way to teach youngsters about history than through the medium of the sport that they are so passionate about. This is the thinking that has prompted J-Museum to devise two new schemes allowing children to learn whilst enjoying themselves.
The first of two workshops created for primary and secondary schoolchildren will see them take a journey through a century of Turin and Italy's history based on the marvels on show in the museum.
The winning and losing, teamwork and sportsmanship that are all a part of football makes it a sport which can teach developing minds a lot about life, and this is what J-Museum seeks to do in its second workshop for schoolchildren: to highlight the similarities between a class and a team, between a teacher and a coach and in doing so stress the importance of loyalty, fair play and acceptance of those who are different.
The second new initiative, created with families whose children are between five and ten years old in mind, is more focused on play but is no less educational. Every second weekend of the month, participants will relive Juventus history through images and the discovery of the exciting objects on show in the museum.
Each learning experience will last 90 minutes and will be divided between the creative workshop and a guided tour of the museum. It will also be possible to include a Stadium Tour of the most exclusive areas of Juventus Stadium in your visit.
