The museum to be in!

The MAH is developing a holistic approach to visits that prioritizes the well-being of visitors as the main objective of its mediation activities. Well-being is understood as the satisfaction of achieving physical, psychological, social, and emotional balance, enabling individuals to live happy and fulfilled lives. This is reflected in the development of an accessible and inclusive range of activities based on a multi-sensory and physical approach, encouraging cultural participation and exchanges. The projects developed focus on: – Museotherapy, utilizing the museum as a vehicle for resilience and healing; – Museum well-being as a living space; – The museum as a social player. – Cultural health: museums for the very young.
