The Museum of Writing

Intended mainly for schools, the museum has two itineraries: one on writing and another on numeration

A section is also dedicated to the history of numbers, where visitors can learn the ancient history of numeration, new forms of calculation, and then put them into practice by doing history and mathematical games, as well as games of logic.
