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.The tours will be offered both as self-guided gallery adventures and as guided tours with our docents. The self-guided tours will feature "treasure maps" to help visitors find their way around the Museum's 80 galleries.Green Tour - Amazing storyWhile 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.This special centennial project was produced by a team of curators and educators led by Senior Curator Ulysses Dietz.
