The paper presents preliminary findings of the research project “Museums and education: methods of approaching and interpreting museum objects” (University of Thessaly, Greece). The research project focuses on the use of live action role playing games (LARPs), viewed as a form of museum theatre, in Greek museums. LARPs in museum settings, a significantly under researched field, appeared in 2007 in Greece and gained increasing popularity, while they succeed to attract new visitors groups. This paper presents preliminary research findings concerning the institutional framework, where LARPs are being developed, as well as LARPs’ form and content as educational programs in a museum setting.
