    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.

    $5 for kids, $9 for adults. Over 4,000 artifacts from Egyptian culture which is the largest in the North American west. Lots of fun and education for families. Read more

    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.
