According to JoAnn Zeise, the Museum's History Curator, the artifacts were made by craftsmen in the Pharaonic Village in Egypt which she described as "an Egyptian Williamsburg."

Among the items on exhibit are:

• Tut's mummy

• His funerary mask

• The Anubis Shrine

And many others.

"This is an opportunity to see Egyptian craftsmanship and, besides, it's cheaper than flying to Cairo and seeing the real thing." Zeise also mentioned that it is highly unlikely that the real artifacts will ever leave Egypt again."They were pretty beaten up when they went on tour 25 years ago."

There is a separate charge to see the exhibit. Further information and online ticketing are available here.

The Museum is located at 301 Gervais Street. Click here for further admission information.The Museum's front entrance has recently reopened and is available to enter the building.
