Soulful Creatures and Green-Wood Cemetery Trolley Tour
Saturday, October 21, 2017
11 am–2 pm
Meet in the Rubin Lobby, 1st Floor
Get a fresh look at representations of animals with two unique tours. This one-of-a-kind experience begins with a tour of our special exhibition, Soulful Creatures: Animal Mummies in Ancient Egypt, which explores the ancient Egyptian process and purpose of animal mummification through a display of mummies of birds, cats, dogs, snakes, and other animals from cemeteries throughout Egypt. Then, we’ll hop on the trolley to Green-Wood Cemetery to compare these spiritual creatures to the wide variety of Victorian-era symbolic representations of animals, from birds and bees to lions and horses, in Green-Wood’s menagerie of monuments.
Tickets are $40 ($35 for Members) and include Museum admission, Green-Wood tour admission, and trolley service to and from the Museum. To receive the Member code, email email@example.com with your full name and Membership ID. Not a Member? Join today!
