Join us for a kid-friendly tour of the Egyptian exhibits at the Kelsey Museum. We begin by reading aloud In Egyptian Times, by Kate Davies and Alfredo Belli. Then we explore the galleries to find artifacts pictured in the book, like a miniature boat, desk and pens, sandals, painted hieroglyphs, real ancient food and Egyptian jewelry. During the tour, replica artifacts will be available for kids to touch and learn from. Take home a scavenger hunt, Egyptian hieroglyphs ID sheet and Senet game board for further discovery! This tour is great for our younger visitors, ages 4-7. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
Saturday Sampler tours are free and open to all visitors. If you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation to attend this tour, please contact the education office (734-647-4167) at least two weeks in advance. We ask for advance notice as some accommodations may require more time for the University to arrange.
