You don’t want to miss the only west coast appearance of Cleopatra: The Exhibition at the California Science Center. This dramatically staged 13,000-square-foot exhibit features the largest collection of Cleopatra-era artifacts from Egypt ever assembled in the U.S.
Her timeless legend has captivated the world for centuries, yet we only know a fragment of her real story. Who was Cleopatra? What, and whom did she hold dear? Was she truly an exotic beauty? In Cleopatra: The Exhibition, we are now one step closer to unraveling her story.
Come discover more than 150 priceless Egyptian treasures from her lost palace in Alexandria that have been unearthed by two of the world’s leading archaeologists Franck Goddio and Zahi Hawass. Walk among these colossal statues, glittering jewelry and ancient coins from nearly 2,000 years ago, and experience what daily life may have been like for the queen. A complimentary audio tour, told in her voice, will help guide you through her life and times as they relate to the seven immersive galleries within the exhibit.
Immerse yourself in this amazing world that has been shrouded by layers of history, and join in the never-ending search to unlock the myth of Cleopatra, the last queen of Egypt. Click here for tickets to Cleopatra: The Exhibition.
