For over 130 years, Slater Memorial Museum has exhibited art from all over the world, each piece telling a story about how human beings communicate their culture through artwork. These exclusive tours will allow visitors to see the hidden history of Slater Memorial Museum as well as what goes on behind the scenes.
Participants will learn about how the Museum collection developed under the leadership of its first Curator, Henry Watson Kent, and will be guided into the Museum's collection storage which houses artifacts not on display in the galleries. The tour will culminate with a walk up the trademark Slater Memorial Museum tower to experience one of the best views in town.
Recommend for ages 12 and up. The tour requires walking and climbing of steep staircases.
