Children gathered in the galleries, crowding around an exhibit, and engaging the guide in a lively discussion is a common sight at the Museum. Sometimes our guides make use of creative aids such as a story, riddles, challenges, or a dramatic presentation,

The Youth Wing's guides have expertise in art or archaeology. They do not limit themselves to the role of intermediary between the visitor and exhibit, but try to encourage critical and creative discussion on topics of culture, art, and society.

Enrich your visit to the Ruth Youth Wing by joining a guided tour, or requesting a particular tour.
