FAMILY DAY IN MUSEUMS OF SERBIA AS A TOURIST OFFER
In 2017, the Center implemented the project We Are Family! Family Day in Museums in Serbia as a Tourist Offer (Mi smo porodica! Porodični dan u muzejima u Srbiji kao ponuda turističkih agencija). The project was supported as part of the PERFORM project of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, carried out by Helvetas and the University of Freiburg.
The concept of family days in museums as an offer not only of museums but also city tour organizations and travel agencies is becoming increasingly popular in the world. It was conceived based on empirical data, that showed that cultural treasures and contents provided by museums are much easier for children to adopt if they are in the company of a close adult, for example, a member of their family. Because of this, we researched museum offers in Serbia intended for children and families, as well as the interests of parents to spend a day with their children in one of the local museums in Serbia.
Considering that PERFORM launched the call to connect scientific institutes and research institutes with the economy, a test tour was organized together with the agency For See—a visit of researchers from the Center and the Institute of Economic Sciences with their children to the National Museum of Kikinda and the “Tera” Museum within the Kikinda factory “Toza Marković”.
