Mr. José Martins 102nd birthday


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

 Christmas underwater

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.


“Sleeping with the whales”


From December 7th to 8th the "sleep with the whales” night was held at the museum. This initiative was intended for children ranging from 7 to 12 years old who, after enrollment, spent the night with the whales! To start the evening, there was a treasure hunt, in search of the lost ark. Then the CozinhArte Workshop where everyone made whale and dolphin shaped cookies shaped, followed by a pre-nap snack. Before bed, they listened to the story " Uma baleia no quarto " and after a long night's sleep, we took breakfast “Whale’s appetite".  Finally, we visited the rest of the museum.
