Cleo and Cornelius
In this special program just for our younger visitors, we’ll read a kid-friendly book and explore a related part of the exhibit. This is a great way to discover the ancient world and connect our daily lives to the lives of families in the past. The program is a great first trip to the museum! Best for ages 4-7.

The book this month is Cleo and Cornelius. Adventurous Cleo and couch potato Cornelius live in ancient Egypt, where cats are worshiped like gods and goddesses. After Cornelius accidentally boards a boat departing on a voyage across the sea, Cleo and Cornelius find themselves in the faraway city of Rome, a place where dogs are treated like kings. In Rome, the activities never end! Cleo and Cornelius race chariots, play games, perform in a theater, and more. Do they even want to return to Egypt? A spin on Aesop’s classic fable “The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse,” Cleo and Cornelius is teeming with hungry hippos, toga-clad dogs, and dancing cat mummies, bringing new excitement to a timeless tale.

This event is free and open to all visitors. If you have any questions or concerns regarding accessing this event, please visit our accessibility page or contact the education office (734-647-4167). We ask for advance notice as some accommodations may require more time for the university to arrange.
