Last week I posted about Museoland, a program of events for children taking place in museums across La Spezia. After taking a friends kids along to the Saturday event I can attest that 1. it kept them completely occupied 2. it entertained them and 3. it educated them. So all in all it was a success.

Tomorrow they’re putting on a special Halloween event at La Spezia’s Ethnographic Museum called ‘The Night Owl’. The event will celebrate magic, mythical legends, nocturnal animals and all things spooky.

On Sunday there will be an event entitled ‘Captain Nastero Ahoy!’ an entertaining look at the famous pirate in which children will be encouraged to recreate the pirates high jinks and make their very own raid logbooks.

All of a sudden, helping out with the kids doesn’t seem to be quite such a daunting prospect…
