Family Program

Art Trek Plus—Holiday at the Met

Stroll through the winter halls of the Museum in search of glittering glass. Warm up as we listen to professor Dennis James of Rutgers University play holiday-themed music on a rare Seraphim glass musical instrument, then explore the galleries to find colorful medieval windows, translucent Roman cups, and shimmering Islamic lamps. Space is limited during the performance; first come, first served. For families with children ages 5–12.
