Penn Museum’s Egyptian Conservation lab: The Penn Museum is giving visitors an inside look at the conservation lab used to study Egyptian artefacts. The new lab is open five days a week, during regular museum hours.
“Housed in a glass box in a third-floor gallery, “In the Artifact Lab: Conserving Egyptian Mummies,” allows visitors to interact with conservators stripping away millennia of grime to uncover the world’s first picture frames, fairytales and graffiti art. Twice a day, the team slides open a window to answer questions about the 2,000-square-foot exhibition. An interactive whiteboard details their tasks for the day, supplemented by a blog at www.penn.museum/sites/artifactlab” – via Courier Post Online.
