Saturday Sampler tours are back! We've missed you and are thrilled to begin offering our Saturday Sampler tours virtually! Join us over Zoom to explore the Kelsey Museum from the comfort of your home.

The theme of this week's tour is Messages and Magic: The Power of Writing in Ancient Mesopotamia.
Around 3200 BCE, a new technology was taking the ancient world by storm: writing. Join us as we explore the development of writing from prehistoric pictograms through cuneiform and alphabetic scripts. We will see how people reacted to this new technology and how they harnessed the power of the written word for their own uses.
