Family Program

Olive fruit and oil have been used for more than 6,000 years as much more than food. In this active experience led by a museum educator, parents and kids will discover the importance of olives in ancient Israel. Families will explore the Houses of Ancient Israel exhibit, craft working olive-oil saucer lamps to take home, handle artifacts, and crown themselves winners in a gallery game with victory wreaths. End the program with an optional olive taste test of products provided by Salt & Olive (Harvard Square).

One session: 1:00–2:30 pm
