For School Groups and Children:

1. The teacher must accompany their class as a supervisor throughout the entire museum visit.

2. Running and loud behavior are not appropriate within the museum.

3. Please provide a peaceful environment for guided groups!

4. School lunches can only be arranged in specifically designated areas. If there is space available at Vapriikki's school tables, students can eat their own packed lunches there. School tables cannot be reserved in advance.

5. Eating food within the museum area is prohibited, as it could pose a risk to the artworks. Food or drink might accidentally spill onto an artwork.

6. In the museum shop, students should visit in small groups, not the entire class at once.

7. Tasks designed for schoolchildren can be printed from Vapriikki's website. Solutions for these tasks can be requested from the Vapriikki information desk (for teachers). When completing tasks, use a writing surface that can be borrowed from the information desk or exhibition area.
