Mummification Workshop

Saturday, February 11, at 1:30 p.m.

The Ancient Egyptians believed that the preservation of the human body was critical to safe passage into the afterlife. Beginning with simple burials in the desert sands, the Egyptians created new methods of mummification that prevented the decay of the body for thousands of years. Exquisitely preserved, these Ancient Egyptians provide deep insight into the beliefs and lives of Ancient Egyptians while simultaneously challenging us to explore even deeper questions.

The Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum is the current home and resting place of the human remains of four Mummified Ancient Egyptians. Come learn their stories and much more at our Mummification workshop.

Admission is free with paid entry to the museum.

Cats of Ancient Egypt

Saturday, February 18, at 1:30 p.m.

The Ancient Egyptians were the original cat people. Cats can be found in Egyptian tombs, in ancient art, and even found mummified by the thousands as votive offerings. Cats were revered as protectors of grain from mice, warrior goddesses and protectors of children. Killing a cat, even accidentally, was sometimes a capital offense.

Please join us to learn the secrets of why the Ancient Egyptians loved the feline form, how cats influenced the Ancient Egyptian spiritual beliefs, and even meet a mummified Ancient Egyptian cat up close!

Admission is free with paid entry to the museum.
