Come see the Egyptian Mummies and Eternal Life exhibit on opening weekend! We will have food trucks parked out front, and live entertainment.

With over 100 ancient artifacts, including mummies, painted sarcophagi, funeral trousseau, and votive objects, this exhibition evokes the mythical, mysterious landscape of the tombs and pyramids of Ancient Egypt.

Visitors will learn about funeral practices and the process of mummification, a topic that has long fascinated both experts and the general public. You’ll discover that all the funeral rituals, even the most macabre, did not serve to simply preserve the body of the deceased, but rather to ensure the continuation of life beyond the grave.
