In order to spread awareness among children about the heritage of India, the Amaravathi Museum Education Centre at Guntur has opened culture education course in the first floor at Amaravathi Heritage Centre and Museum.

The Amaravathi Museum Education Centre, first of its kind in south India, focuses on early education and aims to uplift it in India.

Museum Education Centre Opens Culture Education


"It's a partnership project between Amaravathi Heritage Centre and Museum and the local Mandal Education Office. We have roped in a good number of teachers from primary, secondary and special needs' schools to transform the museum into a resource centre of learning for school children and designed the curriculum for next two weeks. It is an 'a.m. and p.m.' school where children will come before and after the school hours to learn all about the importance of cultural heritage and diversity," said Amareswar Galla, Curator, Amaravathi Heritage Town and International Heritage Advisor to the Andhra Pradesh Government.

"Through this project, we intend to raise awareness about heritage among children and also through the children," he added.

According to him, the aim is to make children understand that heritage is not just about monuments, and it is important to invest time, skills and resources for a participatory approach to heritage.

Over 56 Government schools and 20 private institutions have joined hands in the venture to be part of this new mode of learning under the supervision of the local MEO Indira Rani.

"There is an urgency to equip the younger generation with tools that can help protect our endangered living heritage. Through such means, we want to develop Amaravathi as a role model," said Prof. Galla, an UNESCO accredited international technical heritage expert.
