PIX OF THE DAY
The Houston Museum of Natural Science has just unveiled the latest facet of its expansion plan — the Hall of Ancient Egypt, a 10,000-square-foot exhibit on the third floor of the new Dan L. Duncan Wing.
The exhibit takes each visitor on a journey through the day-to-day life of an ancient Egyptian, exploring along the way everything from politics and religion to landscape and the mummification process. It ends with a look into how we know what we do know about ancient Egypt.
HMNS collaborated with museums across the globe to create one of the most comprehensive exhibits around, featuring more than 500 artifacts. The hall opened to members on May 24. It's general public debut is this Friday.
