Family visit and workshop: “America in Secret Messages”

Aerial view of the Museum of America building© Museo de América The Museum of America offers families with children aged 4 to 10 an activity in which they visit the galleries of the permanent collection looking for secret messages.

The activity focuses on questions such as: How do we communicate? Can we communicate without speaking? Or can we only read letters or words? The goal is to discover the different ways of conveying information we can find in the museum’s pieces. For example, participants will learn about the sign language used on the plains of North America, and the symbols woven into the textiles of the Paracas culture. The tour will be followed by a hands-on session where each family can create its own language. This activity will take place on 4, 5, 18, and 19 November, and 2, 3, 16, and 17 December. Access is free but requires registering in advance. Capacity is limited to 20 people per day.
