April School Vacation Week Activities at the Harvard Semitic Museum
April 17 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 11:00 am, repeating until April 21, 2019
Activities run 11:00am-4:00pm daily from Sunday 4/14 – Sunday 4/21, closed Saturday.
Free, fun, family activities allow visitors to explore arts from the ancient Near East. Activities change daily: make Egyptian accessories, inscribe clay tablets, or decode hieroglyphics. Drop in for five minutes–or 30–to see what is new every day.
Activities take place on the first floor of the Harvard Semitic Museum. Explore the rich history of cultures connected by the family of Semitic languages. Exhibitions include a full-scale replica of an ancient Israelite home, life-sized casts of famous Mesopotamian monuments, authentic mummy coffins, and tablets containing the earliest forms of writing. Admission to the Harvard Semitic Museum is always free.
