Play creatively with history and go from century to century

The Museum Has a Future Studio with the symbol of Malvína the Cat was established in 2011 as a creative space for children, young people and adults. The Studio’s activity has its origin in 1999 when emerged a systematic attempt to educate school groups of children and young people and to lay the foundations for museum pedagogy.

The Museum’s ambitions were oriented towards community work with visitors in the form of leisure programs for families and non-formal education programs for schools and school groups. The foundation of the Museum Has a Future Studio together with the All About the Museum concept contributed to the success of the attempt. The Textbooks Come Alive Project was created in 2017.

The Studio’s symbol is Malvína the Cat as a logo and a toy – mascot. The symbol’s choice is not a coincidence. It used to be a worshipped animal in ancient Egypt. Another reason for choosing a cat is that people believe it  has seven lives. Today’s kids talk about nine of them. But none of us can tell how long one cat’s life is. Let’s play and imagine, and we can count to hundreds of years. And that is why a cat creature can tell All About the Museum.

The All About the Museum concept sets the course for the development of non-formal education programs as well as leisure activities. The programs are based on individual parts of the concept and draw inspiration from it.  
The concept consists of eight basic themes, which are further divided into smaller parts, all of them characterising the principal topic: What is a museum; Who works in a museum; What is the MMB; Expedition to the museums of the MMB; Expedition to a selected theme museum; What is an (Old) Town Hall; the Architecture of the Old Town Hall; Symbols and logos of the MMB. Contents of the individual topics are elaborated further through shorter subtopics from various angles. For example, What is a museum title includes an explanation of terms: what is a collection item, what is a museum deposit, what is an exhibit, what is an exhibition.

TEXTBOOKS COME ALIVE
 
The programme interactively connects the space with historic themes and creates a broader picture of history through the experience. It moves the visitors all along the dominant time axis, highlights important milestones of the world and European history as well as the history of the capital city of Bratislava.
 
Wanderings in search for history is enhanced by a large-scale wall-paper featuring rulers that had influenced the events on the territory of present-day Slovakia from Samo up to Charles I. Magnetic walls with thematic models interactively help to shape specific programmes, enhance their playfulness and develop audience‘s thinking skills by involving several sensory receptors at once.
 
The project The Textbooks Come Alive comprises already seven educational programmes with related eponymous educational books from the series History in a nutshell:

Maria Theresa and us

The Romans came to us

The Slavs from Devín

Secret of the Red Crayfish Pharmacy

Strolling with Mr. Marquart

Mimi‘s Story

A good handicraft has a golden foundation.

PROGRAMMES FOR FAMILIES
 

The Museum Has a Future Studio is an interactive space for everybody ready to play, enjoy and learn new things about the history of the capital city of Bratislava in a new creative and inventive way. The history guide is the curious red Malvína the cat that can squeeze in everywhere and can find out everything.

The Studio offers journeys from present to past as well as a window to future.

 
Interactive accompanying programmes are customised to current displays, permanent exhibitions and collection items and try to answer the question what the museum is good for.
 
In 2022, we prepare a new offer of the Studio titled Birthday Party In a Museum. The programme for children and youth will be provided in an unusual space of a museum and the birthday girl or boy will become a personality from the Bratislava history and will invite her or his guests to a specific historical period.
