About Us

In addition to the visit to the castle exhibitions, the group of children carries out a workshop with a mediator on Otzi: a Neolithic man in the Alps.

The objective of this workshop is to help children discover Neolithic life in the Alps and more particularly what specialists have called the "Neolithic Revolution", at the origin of our modern societies. To do this, they become archaeologists for a day by studying the objects that belonged to Otzi, the famous ice mummy!

Your students will be participants in the workshop, they will put forward hypotheses, they will reconstitute elements of daily life. In the form of a press conference, they will present their hypotheses and confront their points of view...
