Interactive Guided Tour

Knowledge begins with asking the right questions. During the active guided tour in Foam, everyone gets to share their thoughts and participate in the debate.

About the guided tour

What do you see? What do you think happened 1 second before the photo was taken? The museum teacher of Foam asks questions while students discuss their findings together and listen to each other’s discoveries. This teaches students to really look at a photo. Furthermore, they can discover the true meaning of each exhibition Foam displays.  

During the tour, students will discover the exhibitions in the museum in an interactive way. The focus of the tour is everyone’s own way of looking and thinking. The museum teacher constantly asks different questions, which challenges students to look very closely. They look at different elements in the exhibited photos and discover the choices the photographer has made. The tour makes you dive deeper into the subject and context of each exhibition.
