FAMILY SUNDAY | April 10th
In April, “The Discovery of King Tut” will be holding a very special FAMILY SUNDAY. It will be held from 11am to 5pm on April 10th, and will include several exciting activities – all free with admission.
You’ll have the chance to meet Tamara Bower (Facebook) an artist, Egypt-specialist and author of three books about ancient Egypt. She’ll be leading activities for young visitors, including mini-lectures and giving them the chance to write their names in hieroglyphs.
Tamara’s latest book is “The Mummy Makers of Egypt.” Using the classic style of Egyptian art, the book is painstakingly accurate in facts and illustrative style. Artifacts, funerary customs, the gory details of the mummification process, hieroglyphics, and details of life in ancient Egypt are told through the eyes of Ipy, whose father is embalmer to the King. Yuya, father of the Queen, has died and Ipy must help his father in the mummification process.
“The Mummy Makers of Egypt” will be available in the shop for purchase, and Tamara is happy to sign your copy.
Each FAMILY SUNDAY will also have its own special guests. On April 10th, you can enjoy Museum Hack’s unforgettable tours of the exhibition.
