Throughout history women have escaped the constraints of society to find freedom and personal meaning in exotic lands. Gertrude Bell took it a step further—she created the nation of Iraq and founded their national museum. Led by docent Maeona Mendelson.

The museum's Book Club tour is a two-hour docent-led experience. Books are selected to connect with the museum’s works of art. Participants discuss the book in a relevant gallery.

Free with museum admission.
