We saw the Queens of Egypt exhibit and it was amazing. I strongly recommend visiting it as it has a lot of information and some interactive experiences such as the Senat game. We saw the Queens of Egypt exhibit and it was amazing. A very interesting 3-D film is also showing about mummies. You felt like you were actually there. A great experience for sure.
This museum did an excellent job with the layout of their information and artifacts. It was a nice flow of patrons, and I appreciate that it was made clear what was a replica and what was on loan as an artifact. There is a great 3D video on Queen Nefertari's tomb within the exhibit. Highly recommend visiting the Nat Geo Museum for their general free admission displays and also their seasonal Queens of Egypt exhibit. Beautiful, clean, and friendly staff.
