Carnegie Museum Of Natural History


Select objects from the museum’s collection comprise this fascinating exhibition about Ancient Egypt.

Egypt is a nation in northern Africa with a fascinating history dating back thousands of years. One of its longest and most prominent eras is known as the Ancient Period (3150BCE – 30BCE). Egypt became a major Euro-African power economically, militarily, culturally and technologically.

Every Egyptian object in the museum’s care has stories to tell, about its creation and original use, its journey to Pittsburgh, and about the lives of those in Ancient Egypt. Engage with these objects like never before, have conversations with museum conservators, observe the care and restoration of objects in real time, and attempt the work yourself by reassembling replicas of ancient artifacts.
