To celebrate the 102nd anniversary of José Martins (a former miller for EBAM - Madeira Whaling Company), this museum’s education services invited the “Gaivota” kindergarten and CAO Machico. The idea was to sing happy birthday (February 7th) to Mr. José Martins in a playful way and memorable fashion, involving the local community and creating intergenerational bridges. After the applause by the arrival of Mr. Martins the story "O caçador e a baleia" was told, and then we sang “Happy Birthday”, blew out the candles and in a small party throughout the morning, we cut the cake and had some tea
On November 16th 2013 the Nautical Modelling Workshop took place with Mr Manuel Gonzaga as a teacher. This activity was publicised to the public and subjected to prior registration. The training focused on the research, design, materials and construction techniques and propulsion.
In order to encourage people to participate in the holiday decor of museum education services launched a challenge to the youngest. With Christmas trees to decorate the museum, children who visited us could then decorate cardboard balls created for this purpose. This initiative began on November 26th and ended on December 23rd. The chosen ball and the award-winning author were released on the museum’s facebook
