As children continue with their summer vacation, the Museos del Banco Central de Costa Rica are offering what they are calling, “the perfect combination to enjoy the vacation.”
The invitation is to participate in two separate exhibits. The first, “Los Secretos de la Plaza,” is an opportunity for children ages 8 to 11 years old to learn about the building as well as the country’s coins and bills, art and archaeology.
The second, “El Pasado Me Inspira,” gives teenagers ages 12 to 17 years old the ability to learn about the pre-Columbian history of Costa Rica.
“Our pre-Columbian past is not a thing of the past. We continue to see this reflected in the adornments of our body,” said a release.
The plaza secrets workshop will be held Jan. 28, 29 and 30 from 9:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. and costs 9,000 colons. The “inspired by the past” workshop will be Jan. 31 and Feb. 1 from 9:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. and costs 6,000 colons. Persons can reserve a spot at 2243-4224.
