Description: Lost Egypt blends ancient artifacts and hands-on activities to create a learning experience for families, students, and all those with a passion for Egypt and Egyptology. The interactive exhibit features real human and animal mummies, as well as mummy scans and forensic facial reconstructions. Visitors can explore a re-creation of an Egyptian tomb and see authentic art and artifacts from the daily life and funerary culture of ancient Egypt, plus the first ever life-size rapid prototype of a mummy in a stage of "unwrapping". They can also build a pyramid, sit atop a friendly camel and read hieroglyphics as ancient Egyptians did thousands of years ago. Feb 1- May 4, 2014.
