MAN's educational department organises guided tours, workshops and special mediation and teaching projects for various levels of museum goers. The methods used encourage the direct involvement of the participants, stimulate the development of critical thinking and creative skills. By applying a multidisciplinary outlook, the museum's displays are conceived so as to provide an opportunity for understanding and a chance to reconsider the history of humanity and the present day through direct contact with the tangible products of its visual culture, taking note of how they have been affected by changes in society and the development of alternative forms of expression. The teaching workshops place modern contemporary art forms at the heart of activities that are designed to stimulate interpretative and analytical abilities along with the improvement of one's manual and construction skills.
Besides the adult courses and the computer training courses, all classes taught at MAN are free of charge.
