Morgan Explorers: Farsi Language Family Program

Explore the museum from home with a live interactive tour. Each program will take a closer look at objects in the Morgan’s Collection Online, ranging from ancient to modern. Families will receive a creative prompt with each experience, for inspiration to write, read, or craft at home. This program is designed for children and caregivers to enjoy together. Appropriate for children ages 6-12. Program materials: pencil and paper.

Sunday, December 6: In this session, the family virtual tour will be taught entirely in the Farsi language by Morgan Educator Azi Amiri.
