Museum of Antiquities

Join the Museum of Antiquities for some ancient and medieval games!  Kids will have the opportunity to learn the ancient Egyptian board game, Senet, which is a mix of luck and strategy, and the Viking game Kubb, which is like a mixture of horseshoes and bowling, but with wooden blocks!

More about the Museum:  Experience the ancient Near East, ancient Egypt, Greece, Rome and the medieval era right here in Saskatoon!  The Museum of Antiquities at the University of Saskatchewan is a collection of both replica and original pieces from some of the most fascinating ancient cultures around the world.  The Museum’s gallery is open six days a week, with admission by donation.  Along with the gallery and tours, educational programming for children is offered September to May on the last Saturday of the month from 2:00-4:00pm.  “Hands-On History Crafternoons” is a FREE drop in program for kids ages 4-9 which involves a story from an ancient culture and an accompanying craft.

During the summer, the Museum offers summer camps for kids ages 6-12.  Learn about life and culture in ancient and medieval times!  Check out the Museum of Antiquities website or follow them on Facebook to keep up on what programs and events they have on offer!
