Día de los Muertos/Day of the Dead Family Event

Families will enjoy festive music, hands-on activities, and traditional snacks as they learn about the customs that make this a joyful celebration. Create masks and decorations for the special altar. Leave a message for departed loved ones, decorate and take home a sugar skull (extra fee), pose for pictures in front of the calavera (skeleton) backdrop, and watch woodcarving from Oaxaca.

The Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology at Harvard University presents the Día de los Muertos/Day of the Dead Family Event on Saturday, November 2, 2013 from 12:00-4:00 pm. All activities are free with Museum admission; sugar skulls to decorate are $5 each. Recommended for ages 5 and up, accompanied by an adult.
