Event Description

Join us for a kid-friendly tour of the Egyptian exhibits at the Kelsey Museum! We begin by reading aloud “Tickle Tut’s Toes,” by Julie Appel and Amy Guglielmo. Then we explore the galleries to find artifacts pictured in the book, like a miniature boat, desk and pens, sandals, painted hieroglyphs, real ancient food, and Egyptian jewelry. During the tour, replica artifacts will be available for kids to touch and learn from. Take home a scavenger hunt, Egyptian hieroglyphs ID sheet, and senet game board for further discovery! This tour is great for our younger visitors, ages 4–7. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
