Have a blast in Greektown this summer! Think of us when you need to fill your school-free, summer days with fun.
Every Thursday this summer from 10:30am to 11:30am, families can drop-in and attend Young Muses. Young Muses is a weekly program that allows children to explore ideas expressed in NHM exhibits through arts and crafts. Each program will begin with a short, guided tour through a gallery that illustrates a new concept from Greek history or culture. For example, mythological creatures in Gods, Myths, and Mortals or Karagiozi puppet shows in Preview: In Search of Home. After the tour, children will do an art activity that is related to the tour to reinforce the concepts discussed.
Young Muses is perfect for children ages 5-10 and their parents.
Young Muses takes place every Thursday, 10:30-11:30 am, June 7 – August 30.
