Hanko Front Museum offers guided visits for schoolgroups. School visits can be booked Monday-Friday. Do not hesitate to contact us - we are flexible with appointments.
The one-hour guided tour at the museum costs 50 €. The transportation will be the schools responsibility.
Prepare for at least a 2 hours lasting visit. Indoors we will look closer at the exhibition and outdoors there will be a war path, which includes visible traces from the war. The grounds of the museum has trenches, firing positions and other interesting exhibition objects, for instance a tank and several cannons. There is also an obstacle course created for kids to try out.
Ideally the students would arrive either as a class or in smaller groups. Maximum amount of students per group would be 20 - 25 in order to keep the students gathered and be able to hear and see the guide properly - and thus enjoy a successfull visit! We can also receive groups of 50 students but in that case the group will be divided into two units where each unit will take turns visiting both the inside and otuside of the museum (with a teacher present in both units).
Schoolgroups may enjoy their own packed lunch at the museum. Upon request we also offer snacks and refreshments. You can also book lunch for your group at the restaurant nearby: http://villakosthall.com/en/villa-kosthall-english/.
We have created bespoke programs for classes of 1-3, 4-6, 7-9 and also for gymnasium and vocational schools. The programs include guiding of the exhibition, a walk through the war path on the museum grounds. Make sure to save at least 2 h for the visit.
In case of spare time and further interest, the museum can arrange a further visit to the defense line at Harparskog. This will include a visit to the wartime bunker "Irma" which is located at Harparskog, approximately 5 km from the museum. The bunker was an active part of the defense line during the war and next to the bunker you can still see the tank obstacle.
We accept bookings all year round! School groups will have to make a booking for a visit!
