Educational spaces

Logo BBK 5º aniversario
The educational areas designed in conjunction with virtually every new exhibition are an essential part of the Museum’s art program.

They are designed to complement the exhibits and bring them to life through a variety of educational tools, such as panels, interactive software, audiovisuals, audio clips, illustrations, images, and reading rooms. The focus of each educational space varies. Content may have a social, political, economic, artistic, or architectural perspective, and may contain interactive materials for groups or individual learning experiences. All of the spaces are fully accessible for the enjoyment of all Museum visitors. The spaces are always integrated within the itinerary of the exhibition and are designed jointly by the Museum’s Curatorial, Education and Interpretation staff in conjunction with the curator of each exhibit.

The Museum website offers an adapted version of the materials created specifically for these spaces.
