The Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum, architecturally inspired by the Temple of Amon at Karnak, houses the largest collection of Egyptian artifacts on exhibit in the western United States -- including objects from pre dynastic times through Egypt's early Islamic era.
Papyrus-lined paths lead visitors past walls carved with hieroglyphs, clustered lotus columns, elaborate fountains, and colossal statues of Egyptian gods.
Explore Ancient Egypt's fascinating view of the afterlife through the extensive collection of human and animal mummies, canopic jars, and detailed funerary boats and models. Discover colorful and precious jewelry, pre dynastic pottery, glass and alabaster vessels, bronze tools, sculpture, and Coptic textiles.
