Mark your calendars for a free, family-friendly, and fun-filled afternoon at the Kelsey Museum! Our spring 2024 Family Day—happening on Saturday, March 23, 2024, from 12 to 3 PM—promises captivating explorations of “magical” materials from the ancient world. In Newberry Hall, craft stations will offer hands-on opportunities to learn about ancient protective artifacts such as curse tablets, amulets, and bullae, while throughout the galleries, storytelling sessions, scavenger hunts, and Imagination Stations will further engage curious minds of all ages.
