Palazzo Sorbello House Museum firmly believes in the educational role of art.
Our educational offer is constantly evolving and is always attentive to the cognitive, exploratory and emotional needs of our young visitors.
In 2017, as the first Italian museum to join the initiative of the French association Môm'Art, we signed the Charter of the rights of the Small Visitor. By signing this document, Palazzo Sorbello Casa Museo has undertaken to maintain a high quality of reception services for children and families. In the House Museum of Palazzo Sorbello the Little Visitor is welcomed with a smile. In the reception hall, children have a space reserved for them where they can draw, color and read quality illustrated books on the themes of art and the museum as a place of wonders, in Italian and English.
In the museum, some showcases are dedicated to children's literature with rare first editions of illustrated books for children from the late nineteenth century including masterpieces by Beatrix Potter, Louis Wain, Randolph Caldecott. Children will find among the illustrations of the books characters familiar to them such as Sleeping Beauty, Blue Beard, the Three Little Pigs.
