It's a celebration of all things Egyptian at this World Culture Day. The galleries come to life with a medley of activities to help visitors discover ancient Egypt, one of the world's oldest civilizations. Penn Museum’s beloved Sphinx—the largest in the Western Hemisphere, and subject of the book The Sphinx that Traveled to Philadelphia—is guest of honor, as the Egypt (Sphinx) Gallery closes to the public after July 8 for major gallery renovations. Come out and enjoy a Mummy Makers workshop, interactive belly-dancing, art-making, games, Egyptian hieroglyph lessons, and talks on Egyptian history and archaeology. Free with Museum admission.
