People tend to check in during these times:
A little sadder and more run down than I remember from my youth. No mention of the audio tour or passport stamp when we paid. Make sure to bring a camera that can take non-flash pictures in low light.
In 1928 the museum first opened in the administration building of AMORC, but as the collection of artifacts grew, so did the museum.It was permanently moved here in 1995 W/all of Harvey Lewis’ pieces.
Architecturally inspired by the Temple of Amon at Karnak, it houses the largest collection of Egyptian artifacts in western North America from pre-dynastic times to Egypt's early Islamic era.
Really disappointed. Great collection but poor site. My mom has trouble walking and needs a cane but she couldn't make it through much of the space because of all the stairs.
Been going here forever. Be sure you check out the cat mummies and kids should get a little passport for $.50 and get it stamped at each of the stations.
Incredible collection of Egyptian artifacts. Check out the cat mummies
Beautiful construction and wonderful ancient Egyptian exhibit.
Download the audio tour from the website before entering :-)
Use your AAA card for an admission discount.
I remember going here as a kid. Will have to check it out again!
Always one of my favorites, as a child and an adult.
