β€œIn the ancient city of Neba there stood a temple, and in the temple lived a cat. But the cat did not just live there. The cat was the lord of the temple.”

Join us for a kid-friendly tour of the Egyptian exhibits at the Kelsey Museum! We begin by reading aloud "Temple Cat," by Andrew Clements. Then we explore the galleries to find artifacts pictured in the book like hieroglyphs, jewelry, clothes, and our cat mummy. During the tour, replica artifacts will be available for kids to touch and learn from. Take home a scavenger hunt of other animals in the Kelsey Museum! This tour is great for our younger visitors, ages 4–8. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Saturday Sampler tours are free and open to all visitors. If you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation to attend this tour, please call the Kelsey at 734-764-9304 at least two weeks in advance. We ask for advance notice as some accommodations may require more time for the University to arrange.
