Hat Party Program

  • Let’s explore the Museum!
    Joined by a member of the mediation team, children will come to the aid of a hat-maker as they search the Museum’s galleries for various headgear. Different shapes, textures and eras… and lots of discoveries! A fun exploration that will take you back in time to unpack the stories behind these objects!
  • Let’s get creative!
    Inspired by what they’ve learned, the children will embark on a creative workshop where they can let their imaginations run wild. They’ll have the chance to create their own custom party hat, adding a personal twist to their outfit. A fun activity in which each child creates a personalized souvenir.
  • A little something sweet to celebrate!
    To crown the day, there will be time to unwrap presents and share a cake, depending on the little surprises organized at the parents’ discretion.
