Abstract: It is presented teaching aids in digital and printed form used in non-formal educational programmes of the Regional History Museum, the town of Kyustendil, developed during the implementation of two projects in 2019 and 2020 with the financial support of Ministry of Culture in Bulgaria. They enrich the Museum’s workshops for children, monthly conducted since February 2015, informatively. These are twelve five-minute video presentations and thirteen interactive notebooks of four pages each, A4 paper format, illustrating and bearing information about the thematic fields of the workshops. The training aids aim at presenting to children cultural and historical heritage exhibited in museums in general and in the Kyustendil Museum in particular in a more accessible way – artifacts as a part of culture and art in the past, moments of national history crucial for the historical development of Bulgaria and popular customs preserved in traditional crafts. The topics they present introduce participants with the way of living of people in the past, pass through significant historical events and provide some knowledge about three crafts, which originate from the Stone Age. They are grouped in two programmes – Culture and Art in the Past and History and Traditions. Photoes of about 50 findings from Kyustendil and its region dating from Neolithic till Middle Ages are included in the training aids along with the messages they bear interpreted through the respective story. Photoes visually expressing the historical events and traditional crafts – an object of learning in the programme, are also included.
