Summer Sundays at Harvard Semitic Museum
July 14 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 11:00 am on Sunday, repeating until August 25, 2019
Free, fun, family activities allow visitors to explore arts from the ancient Near East. Activities change weekly: construct models of an Egyptian pyramid, 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, one of the Harvard Museums of Science & Culture. The Semitic Museum explores 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. See website for schedule of activities.
