Description

Free, fun, family activities allow visitors to explore arts from the ancient Near East. Activities change daily: make Egyptian accessories, hear a story, inscribe clay tablets, decode hieroglyphics, build a ziggurat or pyramid. Drop in for five minutes–or 30–to see what is new each day.


Activities take place on the first floor of the Harvard Semitic Museum. This Harvard Museums of Science & Culture museum explores the rich history of cultures connected by the family of Semitic languages. Exhibitions include a full-scale replica of an ancient Israelite home, life-sized casts of famous Mesopotamian monuments, authentic mummy coffins and clay tablets containing the earliest forms of writing.
