About us

MUBA is a Foundation, regionally recognised and no-profit, whose purpose is to create and promote cultural expressions aiming at encouraging stereotype-free creative thought in children and prepare them for a society which requires greater and greater creative attitudes.


MUBA develops and spreads non formal education with a view to promoting an innovative culture focused on children direct experience, according to the pedagogical approach of the Children’s Museums, to which MUBA is closely related.

In Milan


MUBA was the first group to successfully present major children’s exhibitions, unique for size and number of visitors.

International


MUBA operates in a sharing and collaborative international environment that guarantees projects are of an innovative nature and always up-to-date.
MUBA is a founding member of Hands on! International - The European Association of Children’s Museums and sits in the Association’s Board as well as being part of ICOM – International Council of Museums.

WHY MUBA
Children can experiment, learn and find out through games and direct experience.
To do, to play, to think, to grow, to enjoy, to touch, to smell, to sniff, to listen, to exchange toys and also to have a birthday party. All the activities are developed to encourage and stimulate the children’s creative way of thinking.
Museum activities are for children between 12 months and 12 years old. The parents / adults accompanying the children share the game experience with them: a fundamental step in the growing process. The expert educators will facilitate and support the creative thinking and the cognitive processes arising.
