The Museum is filled with art from around the world. Each culture and country and time period has symbols that mean something. Learning new symbols is like cracking a secret code! On this tour, students will be sent on a docent-led quest through the Museum. They will have a task in each gallery that encourages them to look carefully at the works of art and discover how artists everywhere communicate with symbols!
