NIAGARA TO HOST EGYPT EXHIBIT

The Niagara Falls History Museum will be home to the Royal Ontario Museum exhibition Egypt, The Gift of the Nile, with the public opening on Sept. 12. This exhibit will be on display until Jan. 5. “This exhibition allows one to travel to ancient Egypt and learn about jewelry, perfume, make-up, food, family life, funerary religion and the afterlife,” the museum says. The museum has also added hands-on stations for visitors to write their name in hieroglyphics, make a mini-pyramid and an Egyptian headdress. Museum curator Suzanne Moase says, “We are excited to show visitors different aspects of the human experience. Egypt has a special place in the minds of many people and this exhibition will provide people with a connection to this very special time.” (http://www.niagarafallsmuseums.ca)
