About the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum

At some point in time, everyone shared an interest in the pyramids of Egypt or the pharaohs who were buried within these great tombs. The gods and goddesses worshipped by these Egyptian peoples are also renowned in this modern era and have been recently featured in modern literature. The Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum stands to elaborate upon these concepts and is one of the only museums where one can learn about these subjects while using a transdisciplinary approach.

This museum contains an entire history of Egyptian culture that is otherwise unknown to the public eye. This includes the religion of Egyptian society, a timeline listing significant events within Egypt, and even alchemy performed by this culture. Some of the exhibits hosted by the museum on these subjects include the Museum Tomb tour, the Park Garden, and the Alchemy Exhibit. The Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum even offers a 360° tour of the location online.

The Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum also offers workshops and programs to visitors who share an interest in learning more about Egyptian society. Weekly workshops are offered every weekday at 12:30 p.m. and focus on a number of different subjects. Some of these subjects include cosmetics, artifact handling, hieroglyphs, and many more. All of these workshops are absolutely free with admission into the museum. Programs are also offered at this museum, such as the Junior Archeologist Program, which is offered to children between grades K-12. This interactive program allows young people to learn more about history in an exciting light, allowing all who explore this museum to experience Egyptian society and culture while having fun.
