Museum didactics

The Civico Museo Archeologico e della Città di Savona, with its headquarters on the Priamàr in the Palazzo della Loggia, is once again organising for the 2023-2024 school year, for all schools of all levels, the educational workshops that have been one of the museum’s highlights since its opening in 1990. It is precisely on this aspect that it is significant that the Savona Museum came second, in 2016/17, in the vote of experts in the sector at the fourth edition of the ‘Francovich Prize’, an award “destined for the museum or archaeological park that, on a national level, represents a case of best practice in museographic layout, didactic-communicative activities and scientific quality capable of adequately representing the themes of post-classical archaeology”.

The Museum is free of architectural barriers and therefore allows the visit of people with motor disabilities. Blind or visually impaired pupils will be able to follow the visit thanks to a special route with Braille panels and numerous tactile points.

The workshop activities, which can be booked in advance, take place on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 9.30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The duration of each module is 1 to 1.5 hours.


6 € per student;

8 € per student if the didactic activity is combined with a guided tour of the fortress, the archaeological areas or the undergrounds.

Free admission for teachers and accompanying persons. The material used in the workshops is entirely provided by the Museum and for some modules the final work remains with the students.

The workshops are structured in two parts: a short introduction will explain the activity they are going to carry out in the teaching area; the second part will be practical. Some of the workshops are repeated in the different school orders, but the content and terminology are tailored to the needs of the class.

The tours are adaptable for all ages and classes. Tours can be modified for children with disabilities. The staff is available to prepare or follow ad hoc teaching routes according to the needs of teachers or schools.
