The Kelsey Museum’s Education Department is excited to announce the relaunch of its Discovery Carts program beginning on Friday, September 8, 2023. Operated by trained interpreters, the Discovery Carts—mobile carts with a selection of touchable artifacts and replicas from the museum’s teaching collection—will provide an interactive, informal experience for all visitors. 

Discovery Cart interpreters will be trained on how to set up the cart, content knowledge, and methods for communicating with different groups of visitors. In addition to giving visitors a chance to interact with the interpreter, the Discovery Carts will provide new opportunities for hands-on learning and access to information about the Kelsey’s collection and Mediterranean history. 

Visitors can expect the Discovery Carts to be set up anywhere within the Kelsey Museum’s permanent galleries. The Education Department plans to host the program on Fridays from 1 to 3 p.m. during most of the Fall semester, from September 8 to November 17.
