Museum Inside/Out Family Event

Sunday, February 28, 2010

9–11 am

Martha A. and Robert S. Rubin Pavilion, 1st Floor

Members at the Family and Friends ($85) level and above are invited to join the Museum’s Egyptian curators and conservators as they bring rarely viewed objects out from storage. Families will get to see animal mummies, mummy bandaging and X-rays, swords, jewelry, and more. In addition, participants can view the special exhibition To Live Forever: Art and the Afterlife in Ancient Egypt while the Museum is closed to the public.



This event also offers families the opportunity to participate in a variety of educational activities: play the ancient Egyptian game of senet, sketch in the galleries on papyrus, and create an item of personal adornment based on the motifs and patterns in To Live Forever. Continental breakfast will be served.



This event, which was formerly ticketed and offered to Contributor ($150) Members and above, is now free and open to Members beginning at the Family and Friends ($85) level.



Space is limited. Members must RSVP to (718) 501-6326 or membership@brooklynmuseum.org with the number of participants by February 22.  Participants must check in at the Membership desk on the morning of the event.
