Safely ensconced in the Sahara desert, and drawing
its lifeblood from the river Nile, ancient Egyptian

archaeologists call a primary civilization,” ancient
Egypt did not rely on inspiration from others to

and of course mummification will be explored in this
new permanent exhibition hall.
When: Members Preview: May 24-30, 2013; Public
Opening: May 31, 2013
Location: Houston Museum of Natural Science, 5555
Hermann Park Drive, Houston 77030
Ever since the late 18th century, the Western world
has been exploring Egypt. This hall will present
artifacts collected during these early days of
investigations, and will also compare old-style
archaeology with 21st-century approaches, such as
using satellite imagery and remote sensing to locate
and map ancient settlements. The Museum’s own mummy,
Ankh Hap, will be moved to his new surroundings in
time for the opening on May 24, 2013.
