Lisbon’s first children festival dedicated to cultural heritage will be held at the city’s National Museum of Natural History and Science from May 19 to 22.

The festival, called Aproxima-te (Get closer, in English), is being organised by Spira, a company involved in heritage revitalising projects.

The event aims to “bring sounds, expressions and tactile experiences to the usage of heritage and culture,” introducing a “cool” heritage that kids can embrace, the organisers say in the event’s official website.

The programme includes dance, poetry, story-telling, historical literature, music, theatre performances and guided tours. It has activities for children and their families, as well as for professionals.

Visitors need to pre-register to take part in some of the activities held.
