Volandia: free access to schools from Octobre 2020 to June 2021

Last year’s Coronavirus emergency forced students of all levels to forego, in addition to face-to-face teaching, also school trips that are so important in the educational and social developement of pupils.

Therefore, Volandia’s Board of Directors has decided, to make the access of schools to the cultural offer of the Park and Museum of Flight easier, that for the school year 2020-2021 all school groups and accompanying teachers will be granted free access to the museum. From 1 October 2020 until 30 June 2021, (from Tuesday to Friday: 9-17) Volandia will open its doors for free to school groups that make an advance reservation, thus reaffirming its support for the cultural and social development of the area, with particular attention to young people. Additional services such as guides, workshops, bar and bookshop will remain paid services.

“Volandia has always been the preferred destination – over 10,000 students visited the museum in 2019 – for many professors who find in the museum in front of Malpensa a perfect combination of history, passion, fun and practical application, thanks to the wide range of educational workshops designed for to children and young people of all ages. The idea of ​​granting free admission for pupils – explains Prof. Pierluigi Galli, head of educationals & teaching at Volandia – responds to the clear desire to bring back to normality not only our museum, but also the students and their teachers. The huge spaces at our disposal, 32,000 square meters of covered exhibition area and 100,000 square meters of outdoor spaces, can accommodate a few hundred students at the same time without compromising the distancing, favoring the socialization so often penalized by distance teaching and alternate attendance at school. The large meeting rooms and pavilions, adapted to classrooms, are also ideal for carrying out workshops and in-depth lessons in total safety for audiences between 20 and 80 students. Features that, we hope, will make Volandia an even more attractive destination than in previous years “.
