365 Aviation partners with The Little Grand Tour to offer museum and gallery day trips for children by private jet
Leading private jet charter business, 365 Aviation has launched a partnership with The Little Grand Tour to offer culturally inspiring day trips for children by private jet. Small groups of up to four children can visit leading galleries, museums and private collections accompanied by The Little Grand Tour ‘Wizards’ – experienced history of art tutors – who bring art history to life through interactive experiences designed to make learning inspiring and fun!
Initially parents will be able to choose from a variety of day trips to in France, Italy, Denmark and Scotland, with further itinteraries yet to be confirmed. With a 20 minute check in and numerous conveniently located private airports throughout the UK and destination countries, children can be in a top international gallery within two hours of leaving home. The Little Grand Tour spends up to three hours with the children focusing on a limited number of artworks and artefacts chosen to inspire a love of art but also to contribute towards school learning. This means it is possible to complete these trips easily in a single day, allowing children to explore culture outside of the UK without having to spend a night away from their parents.
The Little Grand Tour and 365 Aviation have carefully selected four museums for these tours:
Louisiana Museum, Copenhagen - package cost from £8,280
This beautiful museum is situated 25 miles outside of Copenhagen city centre, just on the edge of the water. The permanent collection features thousands of contemporary current artworks and modern art classics. The museum also hosts ten art exhibitions a year for children and there is a kids area where children are encouraged to express themselves artistically and let off steam after learning about modern masterpieces from the likes of Picasso, Giacometti and Henry Moore!
Flights from private UK airport of choice to Copenhagen.
Galleria Accademia, Italy - package cost from £13,780
Opened in 1750, this gallery began as an academy of Venetian artists, much like the Royal Academy in London. Located on the south bank of the Grand Canal, many tourists miss this out and head straight to the Guggenheim or St Mark’s Square, hence its often quieter than other locations, whilst still boasting works by Leonardo da Vinci, Bellini and Canaletto.
Flights from private UK airport of choice to Venice.
The Maeght Foundation and La Chapelle du Rosier, France - package cost from £13,780
Husband and wife team Aime and Marguerite Maeght, built and created this museum together with their famous artist friends, who designed its different areas. The friends who helped design the museum included Miro, Chagall, Giacometti, Braque, Calder & Leger - all heroes of the Surrealist & Cubist art movements and the museum now houses one of the largest collection of 20th Century art.
Flights from private UK airport of choice to Nice.
Jupiter Artland, Scotland – package cost from £8,280
Just outside Edinburgh is this fun and endlessly exciting contemporary sculpture park which really speaks to children. Founded by philanthropist art collectors Robert and Nicky Wilson, it is set in 100 acres of beautiful grounds and features five indoor gallery spaces. Artists featured on the tour will include Anthony Gormley, Phyllida Barlow, Pablo Bronstein, Nicolas Party, and Cornelia Parker.
