Children and young people from kindergarten through high school, are accompanied on their visit to the Museu Casa do Pontal by performing artists and educators who take them on a cultural journey, using the languages of music, puppet theater, illustrated booklets, "storytelling", musical challenge and response, ballads and poetry. The itineraries are tailored to various age groups and different issues can be emphasized during the visit, depending on the approach of the institution.

Dramatized visits were created based on specific content and themes of the collection on permanent display, which allows linking history, art, folklore and Brazilian culture. During the visit, the visitors are encouraged to reflect on the diversity of Brazilian culture, relations between the large cities and the countryside, the migration process, cultural and social practices, as well as on issues more specific to the field of fine arts, creative processes and affectionate memories.

We also offer specialized services for groups of educators.
