Tours led by one of the museum’s guides focus on about ten works related to the chosen theme. Designed with the cultural and artistic objectives of school curriculum in mind, these workshops enhance the children’s general knowledge and introduce them to or develop artistic techniques.

These activities are carried out in French, or in English on request.

The museum offers guided tours and workshops for pupils at every level. These sessions look at the works in the museum and exhibitions within an Asian artistic and cultural context, thereby stimulating the students’ interest in the Far East and encouraging an interdisciplinary approach.

To prepare a self-guided tour, educational kits are available for downloading in French.

Classes of more than 20 young people must be divided into two groups, except for storytelling. For safety reasons, groups are limited to 30 people (excluding the group leaders).
