"Mornings @ the Museum" to entertain children June 4-Aug. 1

At BYU Museum of Peoples and Cultures

This summer, the Museum of Peoples and Cultures at Brigham Young University invites families to "Mornings @ the Museum," a free program filled with fun and educational summer activities Tuesdays and Thursdays at 11 a.m. June 4 through Aug. 1. 

Due to limited space, reservations are required. Participants are asked to contact the MPC's Education Office at (801) 422-0022 to make a reservation. The museum is located at 100 E. 700 N. in Provo.

The one-hour program — designed for children ages 5-12 who are accompanied by an adult — consists of educational stories and hands-on, take-home activities. Three rotating themes will be presented each week during the summer: “Ancient Egypt,” “Masks from Around the World” and “Clothes.” 

"This is our seventh year conducting the program," said Kari Nelson, MPC curator of education. "It’s always popular with both parents and children, and we have a lot of fun doing it."

The program will also highlight the museum’s current exhibits: “Mexican Masks: Concealing Faces” and “Revealing Expressions and Entwined: A Vibrant Heritage of the Modern Maya.”

The MPC hosts educational events to serve the academic mission of BYU by training students to teach about and care for anthropological and archaeological collections in the custody of the university. Educating visitors through events allows the MPC to branch out in creative ways that benefit the BYU and local community.

For more information, visit  facebook.com/byu.mpc  or  mpc.byu.edu . The museum is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday and Thursday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is closed Saturday and Sunday.
