Every year in May the Ministry of Culture of France initiates ‘’European Museum Night,’’ which is a cultural event sponsored by The European Council and UNESCO. Armenian museums started taking part in this event in 2005. This year the ‘’Museum Night’’ took place on May 21. Our Center took part in this event by visiting a number of Gyumri’s museums. The hildren had a wonderful day at Hovaness Shiraz's Museum and visited Gyumri's City square and City Hall. We will be doing more excursions and day trips with the children in order to supplement their academic development.
