Queens of Egypt
From April 10 to November 4, 2018
Travel back in time to ancient Egypt—to the days of the Egyptian Empire, some 3,500 years ago—where you will meet women whose remarkable destiny saw them become the wives, mothers, and daughters of pharaohs! The exhibition features over 350 prestigious objects, including monumental statues, frescos, sarcophagi, a mummy, funerary objects, and jewellery related to such legendary queens as Nefertari, Nefertiti, and Hatshepsut. An impressive multisensory experience that takes a look at one of the most important and celebrated civilizations in history.
An exhibition developed by Pointe-à-Callière, Montréal Archaeology and History Complex, in collaboration with Museo Egizio of Turin (Italy).
