We are also planning a day trip into New York City to the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
“The World Between Empires: Art and Identity in the Ancient Middle East”
Trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City
Saturday, June 15
8 AM – 7 PM
Have you ever wondered what the world
like during Jesus’s time? Cultural artifacts from the ancient Middle East bring us closer to seeing what he saw—and experiencing his world. Travel with us to New York City for a guided tour of “Between the Empires,” a large special exhibition of art and artifacts from cities along an ancient trade route that included the region of Judea.
We will depart New Haven via Metro North at 8 AM. After our tour (11:15-12:15), we’ll eat lunch and explore the museum (in small groups or on your own). The Metropolitan Museum of Art has something for everyone! We will leave NYC on the 5:20 PM train.
We are committed to making this trip accessible for all who are interested, regardless of their ability to pay.
We extend a special welcome to those who have never been to The Met (or to any art museum). If you would like more information about financial assistance, please email co-organizer Lucile Bruce at
Space is limited. Please register ASAP to ensure your place. We will be maintaining a waiting list once the trip is at capacity, and if interest is sufficient, we may be able to secure an additional guided tour to accommodate more people.
$70 includes guided tour + RT transportation (Metro North + cabs/User)
$30 extra for Museum Cafe meal ticket (optional)
