Explores works that dazzle the eye and excite the imagination. The art and science objects were selected for their maximum "wow" factor. Some are big, some are not so big, but all of them are eye-filling feasts of form, pattern, color, line and texture. This tour is particularly recommended for family groups with children.
While the features in these objects may be beautiful, it is the stories behind them that is the focus in the green tour, Amazing stories. Where did they come from? What do they mean? How did they end up here? These are just some of the questions that will be answered along the journey.
A special centennial project, 100 Amazing Objects is spread throughout the Museum's galleries. It is composed of three tours - coded red, green and blue - which focus on a wide-ranging group of amazing objects that will take you from Science to Asia, starting on the third floor of the Museum's Main building. The tours move through all of the galleries, including Natural Science, Native American, Arts of Africa, Classical, American Art, Decorative Arts, Arts of Asia, ending on the third floor of the North Wing.
