      EVENT DETAILS
      Summer Sundays

      Free, fun, family activities allow visitors to explore arts from the ancient Near East. Activities change weekly: construct models of an Egyptian pyramid, inscribe clay tablets, 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, one of the Harvard Museums of Science & Culture. The Semitic 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. See website for schedule of activities.
