“Queens of Egypt” is a major exhibition highlighting and celebrating the most powerful women in ancient Egypt – from the first queen of the New Kingdom, in the 16th century BC, through the final pharaoh of the Ptolemaic dynasty, some 1,500 years later. Visitors will walk among more than 300 ancient Egyptian artifacts, including monumental statues and sarcophagi, embark on a 3D fly-through of one of the most lavishly decorated tombs in the Valley of the Queens and become immersed in the daily life and afterlife of ancient Egyptians. Don’t miss according to Washingtonian magazine: an aqua-blue 18th-century silk robe embroidered with vases and a gold stupa that protected a lock of an empress dowager’s hair. We will tour this exhibit from 11:00-12:30.
The cost is $12.00(Senior discount).
