Since 2005 various educational projects corresponding to the requirements of the time have been carried out in the museum. The aim of those projects is to get children to become a part of cultural heritage of our city, form aesthetical taste in them, instill the culture of visiting museums and of course to bring up worthy citizens.
Taking into account the important fact that the history of Yerevan is not taught as a separate subject in the schools of Armenia the museum of Yerevan history undertakes the mission to fill in this gap.
Within the frames of the educational programs, in parallel with traditional excursions the museum offers the children of different ages interesting cognitive games-excursions the motto of which is to teach through games as children’s world is tightly connected with games.
