Repeats every day until Sun Apr 22 2018 except Sat Apr 21 2018


Harvard Semitic Museum, 6 Divinity Ave, Cambridge

Free, fun, family activities allow visitors to explore arts from the ancient Near East. Activities change daily: make Egyptian accessories, inscribe claytablets, or decode hieroglyphics. Drop in for five minutes—or 30—to see what is new every day.

Activities take place on the first floor of the Harvard Semitic Museum. This HMSC 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 tablets containing the earliest forms of writing.
