Egypt: The Time of Pharaohs will take visitors into the distant past, exploring the myths and realities of ancient Egyptian culture.
More than 5,000 years ago, Egypt’s fascinating pharaohs led one of the world’s most advanced and preeminent civilizations. They built magnificent pyramids and temples and produced extraordinary art and cultural splendor, which spawned a mythical reputation that now captivates peoples’ imagination around the globe.
Featuring more than 350 original artifacts, some more than 4,500 years old, Egypt: The Time of Pharaohs sheds new light on spheres of life along the fertile Nile Valley—from everyday people to their dynastic rulers. Detailed models of famed pyramids, temples and Egyptian homes, as well as extensive multimedia overlays, films, and interactives guide visitors through the fantasy and facts of ancient Egypt.
