Self-guided tour of the Centre of Democracy


Self-guided tour of the Centre of Democracy

This Guide has been created for teachers, to help plan their visit to the Centre of Democracy and provide some ideas for classroom activities before and after a class visit.

You will find lots of great resources and activities that can be explored in the classroom, even if you can’t make it to the gallery in person. You will also find information about each exhibition with suggested questions for discussion, which can be used to support a self-guided museum visit.

All school visits to the Centre of Democracy are self-guided. So, check out our teachers guide for visiting the gallery to help plan your visit.
