The Life And Times Of The Queens Of Old Egypt

 Here we have reproductions of crown headdresses of three iconic Egyptian queens.


I wanted some final shots before I departed. That included one of the video projections.


And wider views of the exhibit and other visitors.


I very much enjoyed visiting this exhibit, and decided to take in the large screen film Mummies: Secrets of the Pharaohs playing in the Museum theatre (my first time in a theatre since before Covid). On the way I photographed this large panel for the exhibit on a rolling door. If you'd like to see the film, click here. Tomorrow we start looking at more of the Museum.

  17. It's very much like our Waitangi museum here in the far north with it's projections but I think these days museums have to keep up with technology to make the experience more interesting for people.
