Voyage to Vietnam: Celebrating the Tet Festival – Last Day

September 7, 2015 all-day



Voyage to Vietnam is being presented in a scaled down version in the Circles gallery before it leaves for a national eight Museum tour through 2018.  Children and their parents will delight in the opportunity to discover the beauty, sights, and sounds of Vietnam through the lens of Tet, the most important celebration of the year, in our newest original interactive exhibition.  Families will immerse themselves in Vietnamese culture, gain appreciation for the traditions, values, and daily experiences of people who live in Vietnam, and discover similarities and differences among the lives of children in the U.S. and in Vietnam. Dress up in customary Ao Dai and pose for an interactive family photo.  Try on a giant lion head mask and make and launch a fireworks display to signal the culmination of the celebration.
