This study approaches culture as a complex term with multiple meanings.
It focuses on pupils' visits to cultural institutions (theatres, museums, galleries, libraries,
cinemas etc.) and their involvement in the programmes offered by such institutions.
The responses of 343 pupils of primary school age indicating the frequency of
their visits to cultural institutions have shown that libraries are frequented the most
(63% of pupils visit them more than ten times per year), while visits to galleries are
rare (61% have never visited a gallery), and are present only among pupils involved
in visual art activities. It has been established that the information relayed by school
friends (24,8%) and parents (22,7%) most commonly influences the involvement of
other pupils in cultural activities; thus the paper points towards the importance of
giving further support to schools in order to encourage pupils to visit cultural institutions
(39% stated that they mostly visited them with their school). Therefore, particular
attention should be given to organising and planning activities and programmes
that aim to satisfy and broaden the cultural interests of pupils. This can be achieved
by expanding and enriching cultural events within cultural institutions, by offering
useful and timely information on activities and events (along with more frequent
promotion in the media, as this is something that is lacking according to the assessment
of the examinees), and by professionally organising and conducting various
