About the Tour
A museum—like a time machine—is where the present meets the past. Travel with us to ancient Egypt, ancient Greece and medieval Europe. This one-hour tour includes hand-on activities with Egyptian hieroglyphs, Greek coins, and compasses. We’ll bring the backpack with supplies, you bring a sense of adventure and your deductive skills! The "Time Travelers" tour is recommended for ages 5-12. One adult for every three children is required.
