The Museum “Zaraysk Kremlin” offers a number of exciting quests and games for children and their parents. Children of small ages will definitely like the quest “The mysteries of Zaraysk Kremlin”. For 1.5 hours little visitors will be searching a treasure moving around the area of the fortress with a route map. During every stop they will discover a new object – a tower of the fortress, a fragment of the wall or a part of the other treasure. While following the route children are competing in agility and accuracy, shooting a bow and throwing ball in special baskets. For answering the tour guide questions, the participants will receive parts of the route map which will lead them to the treasure.
Besides the quest, both children and their parents can participate in a programme called “Kremlin Poteshki”. The guests will participate in a round-up excursion in the Kremlin including ascending the walls of the fortress. Later the kids may participate in an interactive class “Old russian games” where they will learn about national russian dolls and can make a doll to take it home.
