McClung Museum Offers Ancient Egypt Stroller Tour December 10

 

The Frank H. McClung Museum will offer its third stroller tour for caregivers and children on Monday, December 10.

This month’s tour will focus on the Ancient Egypt exhibit. The event will begin at 10:00 a.m. in the foyer at the museum on the Knoxville campus. It is part of a monthly series of free stroller tours that will allow parents and caregivers to interact with one another and museum staff without the worry of disrupting other visitors.

All tours will be led by museum educators and will take place in a different gallery each month, exposing guests to a variety of the McClung’s exhibitions and collections. The tours will last about thirty minutes with fifteen minutes of time for questions.

Next month’s tour date is Monday, January 28. The event is designed as a hands-on discussion and show-and-tell. Participants will see artifacts from the McClung’s permanent and education collections up close and learn about the various objects housed at the museum.

The tours are free and open to the public but are first come, first served and require registration. Click here for more information or to register, or contact Abby Naunheimer at 865-974-2144 or anaunhei@utk.edu.

The museum is located at 1327 Circle Park Drive. Free two-hour museum parking passes are available from the parking information building at the entrance to Circle Park Drive. The grassy area in Circle Park in front of the museum offers a great place for rest and play before or after tours.

Photography is welcome in most museum galleries. Restrooms are equipped with a changing station. A service elevator is available for those with strollers to go downstairs. Food and drinks are not allowed in the galleries.

The museum’s exhibits include archaeology, ancient Egypt, decorative arts, the battle of Fort Sanders, geology, and fossils. Admission is free.
