Do you remember the first time you saw—or rode—a horse? Horses made people stronger and freer than they’d ever been. First, we’ll learn about how horses and people work together in the world of the desert Bedouins and you’ll see a display of weapons and objects from Bedouin tents. Then you’ll gallop off on your own adventure through the museum to explore horses in art.
