A great museum with a ton of Egyptian artifacts. Really great place to spend an afternoon and the admission price is not expensive.

Wonderful exhibits on Egyptian artifacts and other current exhibits... took my Grandchildren and they did enjoy and liked seeing something from another culture... They were fascinated by some of the items (the mummy's) .... and learned some thing new..

Worth the visit! Impressive selection in a small museum. So much better than the current High Art Museum’s exhibits as at least 2 floors are under renovation.

After reading previous reviews, my husband and I visited the museum last Sunday. Apparently, this was a “free” admission day. Also there apparently was a Groupon in force on audio guides. The museum was stuffy and very crowded. I had read reviews extolling the virtues...More
