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. Get to know the wonderful treasures that make the MFAH a crossroads of innovative ideas from around the world and throughout time.
