The only children's museum in Ticino where art is discovered while playing.
The “Museo in erba” brings children closer to the world of art and stimulates their creativity through a playful and educational approach at the same time. In collaboration with the Centre Pompidou Paris - Jeune Public, and other important Swiss and international realities, it offers interactive exhibitions and workshops for children aged 4 to 11 years.
With a unique exhibition space in Ticino, the "Museo in erba" is the right place where to learn about artists and movements and where to express emotions with colors, both with the family and with the school. Even the youngest (2/3 year olds) with their parents take their first steps in the world of art thanks to the "Baby atelier".
