Amman, October 9, 2016 – Her Majesty Queen Rania Alabdullah visited the Children’s Mobile Museum Jordan after it arrived at the theatre of Alkhansa’a Secondary School for Girls in Jerash, and toured the different interactive stations of the Museum.
At the beginning of the visit, her Majesty listened to a brief presentation about the latest upgrades in the different stations of the Mobile Museum, among which was the newest addition; the station of Power Around Us. The new station was developed with the aid of the Delegation of the European Union. It aims at raising children’s awareness of the importance of renewable energy, and how to generate power from natural resources like water and wind.
During her visit, Her Majesty met with the Ambassador of the European Union Andre Matteo Fontana, and the Director of the Children’s Museum Jordan Sawsan Dalaq, where Her Majesty shed a light on the importance of raising children’s awareness of renewable energy, especially through what the Children’s Mobile Museum offers in an interactive manner that reaches the majority of the Jordanian provinces.
Her Majesty also met with the principal of Al Khansa’a School, Ikhlas Alfangary, and toured the different facilities of the school and met with a number of students and teachers. Her Majesty listened to the general achievements of the school, and to the challenges it encounters.
Sawsan Daleq, Director of the Children's Museum Jordan, said that the Children’s Mobile Museum is one of the programs of “Museum for All” initiative of the Children’s Museum Jordan. The program aims at making the unique and educational experience of the museum available to the biggest possible number of children and families, who were deterred from visiting the museum due to certain circumstances like geographical distance or financial difficulties.
The Mobile Museum carries along many exhibits and exciting interactive activities that are distributed on several discovery stations, which aim in general at encouraging children to be curious, learn and develop their scientific skills. To mention a few of the stations, there was the Planetarium, Movement and Activity station, Science Around Us station, and the City Yard station.
It is to be noted that since its launch in 2012, and until the end of the last year, the Mobile Museum welcomed around 173 thousand visitors for free, and around 40 thousand visitors in 2015 alone.
