Family Day is a biannual, family-friendly event featuring engaging, hands-on activities related to the cultures of the ancient Near East, Greece, Egypt, and Rome!

Discover how people lived in the past by playing ancient games, handling replica artifacts, trying on ancient clothing, and learning to write in new alphabets.

Explore the museum on kid-friendly tours of the museum galleries and learn how to explore the ancient world in continuing activities at home.

Create your own versions of ancient artifacts to take home (like frescoes, mosaics, mummies, toys, jewelry, pottery, hieroglyphs, seals, and more) inspired by the artifacts on display at the Kelsey Museum.

The Museum and Family Day are free and open to the public. Engaging, hands-on activities take place in Newberry Hall. Kid-friendly tours of the exhibition will take place at 1:00, 2:00, and 3:00 PM.
