This family-friendly workshop allows kids to experience an excavation simulation and make mosaics that they can take home. Kids love being an archeologist for the day! Enjoy learning about mosaic art's fascinating history, which originated from the Minoan Cretan.

To start, your family will receive an introduction to archeology by a real archeologist — what is it, what do archaeologists do, and how do they tackle an excavation? Then, you'll conduct a dig in a Minoan house. Using a combination of Minoan artifacts and fossils buried in the sand, you and your family will reconstruct history.

Next, you'll enjoy a mosaic workshop, learning about the art's history. Choose your favorite photos, cut the stones, and create your very own mosaic. Take your souvenir home to remind you of your time as an archeologist and Minoan artist.
