EVENT: Grimsby Museum welcomes the Nile – Egyptian exhibit on display until March

“On display until March 17, the museum’s latest exhibit, Egypt, Gift of the Nile, is a special travelling exhibition from the Royal Ontario Museum. It includes 68 authentic Egyptian artefacts including jewellery  carvings, writing implements and fabric along with three replicas — a mirror, wig and sarcophagus) — and a model of a boat, on loan from the largest Egyptian collection in Canada. The exhibition is divided into 10 centres: introduction to ancient Egypt, personal adornment, make-up and perfume, feeding the household, buildings large and small, family life, education, religion, funerary religion and the afterlife” – via Niagara This Week.

The exhibit will be on display until mid March. The museum, located at 6 Murray St., is open Wednesday to Friday from 1-5 p.m., Wednesday evenings from 5-7 p.m. and weekends from 1-4 p.m.
