All through history, people across cultures—in order to help make sense of the world in which they live, and their place in the universe—have created myths about super humans, heroes, and gods.

Fall Tour Series: The Human Experience
The history of the world is the story of the human experience in all its triumphs and tragedies, grandeur and follies. This series of 45-minute tours explores five universal themes, using examples from both Western and non-Western cultures. Guests can get to know the wonderful treasures that make the MFAH a crossroads of innovative ideas from around the world and throughout time.
