How does it work?

Divided in groups of 5 or 6, the pupils receive a bunch of keys; these open a number of chests containing a variety of activities to enjoy and discover some aspects of Coudenberg Palace: what it looked like, how it grew, its history, the collection of archaeological objects, archaeology itself… The games require mutual aid between the children and encourage the living together.Coffre Waouw
