Virtual Colors of the World: Illuminated Manuscripts in the Age of Exploration

Students will examine selections of the incredible medieval and Renaissance manuscript collection of the Morgan, relate the works to world history, and deepen their understanding of cultural interactions between diverse peoples across time and place.

Offered At

The Morgan Library & Museum

The Morgan Library & Museum's school programs are anchored in teaching philosophies that define education as a way of building children's confidence as self-reliant seekers of knowledge and independent-minded creative thinkers.
In a classroom setting, the K–12 curriculum in the sciences and humanities is rarely studied through direct observation of primary sources, such as Mesopotamian seals and tablets, medieval and Renaissance manuscripts, rare printed books, master drawings, and period architecture.

Please note that for in-person field trips, we limit groups to 15 for a more interactive and intimate experience. We can accommodate no more than 4 groups, or 60 students, at one time in our historic library.
