Family Days

Family Day programs at the Kelsey Museum are designed to teach children aged 5-12 about the ancient world. Each two-hour program brings the past alive through creative educational and hands-on activities. The Egyptian Family Days feature a hieroglyph workshop, mummy making, and crown and jewelry design, while Family Days held in conjunction with special exhibitions include an array of other activities. Past examples include "Animals in the Kelsey," where children undertook a scavenger hunt of the museum, followed animal tracks through the galleries, and learned how to spin wool. The "Villa of the Mysteries" highlighted fresco painting and making mosaics. These lively programs provide creative educational activities for children to learn about the everyday life of people who lived in the ancient Egyptian, Greek, and Roman worlds.
