What better way to learn about the culture of another place than to speak to someone who grew up there? Join us for a thought-provoking virtual tour of the Asia Galleries led by a guide who grew up on the continent.
See everything from oracle bones, the origin of Chinese writing, to a beautiful collection of Buddhist artwork revealing international Silk Road connections. Through the Global Guides program, the Museum offers gallery tours led by Philadelphians who grew up in countries around the world. In addition to sharing historical information about the artifacts on display, the guides combine personal experiences and stories to interpret objects from their countries of origin.
