Unlike conventional children's museums, Advent specializes in creating mini-museums that travel around the world.
The Advent team is a group of passionate education reformers who believe that meaningful exposures to the real world should be provided to every child. Interactive exhibitions built on rigorous real-world content is one of the best ways to give children a knowledgeable, unforgettable, exciting, and fun enjoyable adventure in their early childhood.
We create original installations, or adapt existing exhibits into interactive form, and ship them to places around the globe for children to experience, starting from cities in China. Features of Advent's mobile mini-museums include:
with the real world
with narratives to follow
with questions to explore
with wisdom worldwide
