On our maternity leave bucket list was visiting the California Science Center to see the Cleopatra Exhibit. Last week, we seized the opportunity and headed downtown.
Irving and I visited Egypt a couple of years ago, and have since been fascinated with the history. It’s crazy to think that these pieces traveled all the way to Los Angeles for us to see.
There weren’t too many artifacts, but the ones they had were pretty significant. Most were found under the sea in Alexandria and they were preserved really well.
PS. I am so impressed with myself that these photos with no flash came out!
I wonder if Adele will be intrigued by ancient Egypt like I was too. Don’t all little kids want to be archeologists?
We did our usual walk through the giftshop after, imagining what Adele might pick out someday.
I love museums. We are so lucky to have so many close to us here.
