Saturday Sampler Tour | Read and Look: "G is for Gladiator"

Saturday, October 6, 2018
2:00-3:00 PM
Kelsey Museum of Archaeology Map
“A is for Archaeologist. Archaeologists uncover clues
to life in Ancient Rome,
revealing buried treasures:
frescos, rings, a vase, and a comb.”

Join us for a kid-friendly tour of the Roman exhibits at the Kelsey Museum! We begin by reading aloud some highlights from "G is for Gladiator," written by Debbie and Michael Shoulders and illustrated by Victor Juhasz. Then we explore the galleries to find artifacts pictured in the book like brightly colored frescoes, mosaics, jewelry, coins, and toys. During the tour, replica artifacts will be available for kids to touch and learn from. Take home a scavenger hunt and a merels game board for further discovery! This tour is great for our younger visitors, ages 4–8. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Saturday Sampler tours are free and open to all visitors. If you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation to attend this tour, please contact the education office (734-647-4167) at least two weeks in advance. We ask for advance notice as some accommodations may require more time for the University to arrange.
