Program 1

SAFE Tours

Conceived by SAFE, these unique tours(http://www.savingantiquities.org/tours.php) are guided by art
historians, archaeologists and museum specialists and journalists. SAFE
tours provide an “insider's look” at museum collection and focus on
artworks and artifacts that have dubious provenance or are presumed to
be illicit. SAFE Tours offer a museum experience you will not find on
other museum tours.
Also highlighted are objects that have been excavated properly.
The information we are able to gather from these artifacts is contrasted
with the lack of information from items without provenance, or history
of origin.

We customize tours to suit participants' specific interests.
Please check back for updated tour listings. Tours last about an
hour-and-a-half. For more information contact us at tours@savingantiquities.org(mailto:tours@savingantiquities.org) .
