Kids at the Museum by RAFI

Ramon Aboitiz Foundation Incorporated celebrates National Children’s Month through Kids at the Museum. This activity aims to establish to children that museums are more than just repositories of heritage objects, but also venues for actively learning Cebuano culture and heritage.

Children will be exposed to local games (tubig-tubig, sungka, dam, and takyan), visual arts (drawing, collage and photography), and literary and performing arts (balak and sugilanon/story-telling).  Attached is the program and schedule of activities.

Two hundred fifty children from six barangays—Parian, San Roque, Santo Niño, T. Padilla, Tejero and Tinago, the Parian Drop-in Center and kids of tartanilla drivers will be involved in the workshops/contests held at the Casa Gorordo Museum and Fort San Pedro.

The event is organized by the Ramon Aboitiz Foundation-Cultural Heritage Program, the Cebu City Government, the Parks and Playgrounds Foundation, and the Carolinian Sociological-Anthropological Society.

For inquiries and/or confirmation, please contact Harold de Mesa or Michelle Ann Belen at 418-7234 local 520, or email at or
