4 Open Days in June/July 2021 – Creative Europe Programme for the Audience Development

Italy, Esapolis Museum : 19th June 2021

Esapolis Exciting New Beginnings for Kids and Adults

The new customized Virtual Reality, App and video experience makes the museum tours more exciting for kids and adults.

The Padova Living Insects Museum, Esapolis, has reopened its doors. During the months of closure forced by the pandemic, Esapolis has renewed its activities thanks to the European project MUS.NET. (MUSeum NETwork) funded by the Creative Europe programme.

At the Open Day on June 19th, from 10 am to 5 pm the visitors can discover the new attractions for free. Starting from June 19th, three new tools are going to be available to the visitors:

a video which tells the history, the activities, and the collections of the museum informing about Esapolis and the museums of the project network;

– a user friendly App that innovates the approach to the collections, engaging the visual, sensorial and emotional spheres of the visitors. The App is integrated with videos, comments, and photo captions to make it accessible also to visually impaired people;

– a Kids Corner equipped with the Draw Alive software that creates a magical place in which children can unleash their imagination.

MUS.NET. Open Days will be organized until April 2022. The first round of Open Days is going to take place in four different venus across the partner network in June and July 2021.

The 19th June 2021 Open Day is free. Admission is limited due to the Covid regulations. Visitors are required to reserve their visit at No. 049 8910189.

The announcement on June 9th:



When it will be? 

Coinciding with the celebration of the San Juan Festivities in Aguilar de Campoo (Palencia), the open day will be held on Friday, June 25, during the usual hours of the centre, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and from 4 p.m. to 8 pm.

What will it consist of?

Guided and free tours will be held every half hour in which the technological innovations introduced by the Rom will be presented to improve the visitor experience and attract new audiences, with special emphasis on people with disabilities and children.

These novelties consist of an user friendly App, a ‘Kids corner’ to “learn by playing” thanks to Augmented Reality and a visitor information space, which includes a welcome video.

All of them have been implemented within the framework of the European MUS.NET project, in which the Rom participates, and whose objective is the development and segmentation of audiences to improve the visibility of small museums and attract a greater number of visitors.

What will the development be like?

This is not a traditional guided tour of the monastery. Each shift will last about 20 minutes in which the objectives of MUS.NET will be briefly explained and, above all, the three new functionalities that have been implemented thanks to this initiative: app, visitor information space and ‘Kids corner ‘.

Once this presentation is made, the objective is that visitors can visit and get to know the centre through the use of new tools.

At the end of the visit, all the people who participate will receive a souvenir gift.

What do I have to do to attend?

Each group will have a maximum of 25 people to comply with the security protocols required by the coronavirus pandemic. For this reason, it is necessary to make a reservation in advance by calling 979 12 30 53 or writing an email to
