On Sunday, 6 November Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah of the Kingdom of Jordan escorted Poland’s First Lady, Agata Kornhauser-Duda on a tour of Jordan’s Children’s Museum in Amman.
President Andrzej Duda of Poland and his wife, Mrs Kornhauser-Duda, made an official two-day visit to the Kingdom of Jordan which was organised not only to strengthen long-standing ties between the two countries but also to forge new initiatives of cooperation and collaboration.
Queen Rania and Mrs Kornhauser-Duda made their way to the Children’s Museum following the official welcome of the Polish delegation by Her Majesty and His Majesty King Abdullah II.
The non-profit Children’s Museum was launched by Her Majesty in 2007 as an education organisation offering more than 150 permanent exhibits and educational facilities. The indoor/outdoor space offers year-round education programs and events for children.
The visit showcased the dynamic learning exhibits the museum has on offer including the Tinker Lab and the Biodiversity Exhibit which aim to raise children’s awareness about the importance of water conservation and the pursuit of renewable energy sources.
Museum Director Sawsan Dalaq warmly welcomed the two esteemed visitors and highlighted how the Museum’s exhibits aim to enliven the educational experience of all young children and students who visit through unique design and a special focus on interaction and hands-on experience. This format encourages enjoyable learning and innovation for the children while keeping local challenges and homegrown solutions at the forefront of their minds.
Queen Rania and Mrs Hornhauser-Duda also visited the Toddler’s Exhibit Area – a platform featuring artwork by Jordanian children – and the Art Studio, where they met children engaged in various creative and artistic pursuits.
After a second busy day of engagements on Monday 7 November President Duda and Mrs Kornhauser-Duda concluded their visit to the Kingdom of Jordan, flying back to Poland from King Hussein International Airport in Aqaba.
