Min-Pack

In order to contribute to a better understanding of our research, the Museum has developed a learning-kit for children, called Min-pack. It is rented to schools and other educational institutions. Min-pack is a learning kit carried in a suitcase that contains a variety of materials including clothes, musical instruments, and everyday commodities, of the world’s countries and regions, with children’s learning aids.
