Do you want to try sign language? Are you curious to find out how to use Braille? Would you like to know more about the human senses that help us daily? Visit the Museum of Special Education in Levoča during the “Feast of Museums and Galleries”.

The Museum of Special Education in Levoča is an organizational part of the Slovak Centre of Scientific and Technical Information (CVTI SR). The museum is traditionally involved in the day when the museum or gallery does not close at night.

“You will not be bored with us. In addition to a guided tour of the permanent exhibition, you can choose more from a rich program. The permanent exhibition is dominated not only by historical, rare exhibits but also by an interactive oversized human ear or eye. As part of experiential-educational programs, you will learn ‘How did little Louis read,’ you will learn about ‘Naughty letters in the palm of your hand’. You can also learn how to gesture and communicate with the deaf. Children will also find out where a naughty piglet lives and get acquainted with the mischievous Helen … and much more,“ invites Štefánia Petreková, the head of the museum.

When the weather will be good, there will be a playful space for the little ones in front of the museum. The children become the figure in the traditional game ‘Don´t get angry, man!’. It will be more fun for them than just moving hand around the board game.

“The atmosphere at the museum will be shared by a short online invitation for those, who are not able to visit us that day. Of course, we believe that they will soon visit the museum in person,” adds Petreková.

This year’s Night of Museums and Galleries starts at noon with a “tailor-made” program for any age group.

More information about the entries and valid anti-pandemic measures are available on the website and on the social networks Facebook and Instagram,” concludes Petreková.

The Night of Museums and Galleries take place under the auspices of Zuzana Čaputová, the President of the Slovak Republic.
