Archaeology for Children

Please bear with us while this page is being updated

Create - Connect- Communicate 

We began our activities for children on the 19th of February 1999, at the Ellen Sharma Memorial Matriculation School, at Sholinganallore, 30 km outside Chennai. 

Close to the IT hub of Chennai, and en route to the World Heritage Site of Mahabalipuram, we are ideally situated to cater to both urban and rural children.

With a little museum is an experiment in education, a small step to enable children to enjoy learning outside the school environment and to have fun in a creative and challenging environment. We have special free programs for underprivileged children from urban and rural areas. We run workshops within the museum and also conduct outreach programs for those who cannot visit us.

Our Objectives

Create a unique museum environment to enhance children’s learning experiences in the field of Indian heritage, to encourage creativity and skill development  and enhance imagination through well-conceived displays, exhibits and learning modules;

Connect scientists and children through interaction with research scholars at and visiting the SCHE;

Communicate cutting edge research by SCHE and others in the field of archaeology and past environments to children, teachers, and corporates.

We are under renovation. Till then check out our weekly ongoing workshops for children, teachers and the interested public
