Sunday Drop-In Tour | Trash or Treasure? Extraordinarily Ordinary Kelsey Artifacts

Kristen Goodman
Sunday, May 19, 2024
2:00-3:00 PM
Kelsey Museum of Archaeology Map
The Kelsey Museum is home to an impressive number of artifacts that provide insights into the everyday lives of people from the ancient Mesopotamian, Egyptian, and Roman worlds. This tour will look at the Kelsey’s carefully excavated and curated artifacts—which their original owners would be shocked to see on display behind glass in a temperature-controlled building. In fact, some of these items would have been considered trash or recyclables! Check your hoarding tendencies at the door and join us as we learn more about the priceless everyday artifacts at the Kelsey.

This event is free and open to all visitors. If you have any questions or concerns regarding accessing this event, please visit our accessibility page at or contact the education office by calling (734) 647-4167.
