AncientEgypt

The culture of ancient Egypt holds a universal appeal and fascination for adults and children alike. The Museum of Man is fortunate to have one of the most important ancient Egyptian collections in the United States. This is due to the rare gift of over 400 objects from the Egyptian Exploration Society and the generosity of Ellen Browning Scripps in the 1920s and 1930s. These artifacts are from the ancient city of Amarna, where the Pharaoh Akhenaten and Queen Nefertiti reigned, and the young King Tut spent his boyhood. This collection features hieroglyphic stone carvings, jewelry, pottery, amulets, and everyday objects, all documented by archaeologists.

Two authentic Egyptian mummies, on loan from the Los Angeles County Natural History Museum, are also featured in the exhibition. CAT scans and x-rays on display provide an inside look at what can be learned from mummies without unwrapping or damaging their remains.
