"Rendez-vous Moissac" program (only in French)
All year long, the Abbey of Moissac proposes some discovery booklets (only in French) adapted to your children's age.
• From 3 to 6 years old, they offer an approach based on a basic observation of the cloister.
• From 6 to 12 years old, they go back in time up to 1485 and immerse themselves in the everyday life of the monks to find back the stolen broach of the abbot.
• From 12 to 16 years old, they are brought, by a succession of riddles, games and activities, to walk around the abbey in order to appreciate its beauties, decipher the hidden messages behind the sculptures and discover the importance of the land of the dead in the life of a monastery.
• Finally, for the maths fans, there is a discovery booklet created for the Sciences Festival that gives the opportunity for everyone from the elementary school to adults to brainstorm within the abbey itself.
The "Aprems' patrimoine" activities
Some educational animations are proposed during the school holidays (only in French). Thanks to fun and creative workshops, children discover one aspect of the heritage then they use their knowledge and know-how to draw an illumination, learn the basics of stone-cutting, produce a pavement tile of the 13th century... and more other possibilities !
From 6 years old.
