Chocolate Museums

Chocolate Museum in Bruges The Belgian town of Bruges is a sweet tooth paradise: masterpieces of pastry chefs are exhibited at the ChocoStory Museum. Here you can find out that a Belgian pharmacist instead of a cough medicine accidentally created bitter chocolate, and pralines were invented when nuts were added to chocolate in order to please the Duke of Plesi Pralin. In the museum, the confectioner in front of visitors creates a favorite treat for everyone, and the bar offers 44 chocolate cocktails, not similar to one another. In the gift shop you can buy sweets and even chocolate dessert for dogs.

To help parents – special programs in museums for children

Meanwhile, many world-famous art museums have special programs for young visitors. Thus, the Hermitage offers excursions and lecture cycles for children of different ages. Preschoolers on their way to the museum are met by the fairy Fairy and a toy kitten Smotryk, and during the tour-game, children will learn about the history of the Hermitage, about famous artists and sculptors, about art from different countries and eras. Younger schoolchildren and adolescents are offered lectures corresponding to their level of development. There are also separate programs for families with children. If you are staying in St. Petersburg for a long time, you can purchase a subscription to the cycle of children’s excursions. The State Tretyakov Gallery for Children has prepared a quest game. Here they suggest turning an ordinary excursion into a detective story. Continue reading

How to take a child on the road

In order to interest the child, get new interesting little things in front of the road: miniature cardboard books, small soft toys, magnets, a small drawing board, multi-colored pens, etc. The main thing is that the toys should not be too small, do not crumble-spill-unscrew. In addition to new toys, one or two are needed that the child knows and is used to, because when he gets into new, unfamiliar conditions, he should have a piece of his usual life nearby.

The next component of the baggage is children’s goodies and – necessarily – a bottle of water. As a rule, young children love everything bright and rustling, therefore it is not necessary to take one bag with a bunch of food, it is better on the contrary – there are a lot of bags, and there is not enough food.
