Family Day: Secrets of Egypt
Join the fun at Family Day! Family Day is an annual event where you and up to five guests can visit the museum, see award-winning films, and hear live talks from National Geographic Explorers to learn about the incredible work they are doing around the world. This year, you and your family travel back in time to ancient Egypt! Embark on a virtual visit to the land of the Nile some 3,500 years ago, when the queens of the 18th and 19th dynasties ruled over this storied empire. Check out the new multisensory exhibition, “Queens of Egypt,” where you’ll learn about the lives of seven incredible queens, visit the “Sistine Chapel of ancient Egypt,” and see more than 300 precious artifacts from every aspect of Egyptian women’s daily lives. Then try your hand at some hands-on activities, play Egyptian-themed games, see an Egyptian dance performance, and much more!
