To learn how men lived, how they thought and
acted in centuries past, is not only fascinating but
highly instructive. No civilization of past ages has
more allure and romance than that of ancient
Egypt—the largest and oldest of all past cultures.
It is remarkable how many of the common
things of today had their origin in ancient Egypttaxes, cosmetics, writing, religious practices, domestic customs, jewelry. These and hundreds of
things are our heritage from ancient Egypt.
To walk in the galleries of this Museum is to
lift the veil of time and to adventure into another
and thrilling world. Each case of exhibits is like
a page of history; it delineates the hopes, aspirations, accomplishments, and superstitions of men
and women of past ages.

of visual education. You do not just
read about but you also see the arts
and handicrafts of Egypt, Babylonia,
and Assyria. Before you are Babylonian contract tablets used for providing labor and supplies thousands
of years ago! There are tax receipts
and original proclamations by kings
mentioned in the Bible and other
literature.
Thousands of school children and
classes from colleges and universities
visit (by appointment only) the
Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum annually. This Museum is owned and
maintained by the Rosicrucian
Order, AMORC, a nonprofit, worldwide cultural organization. It is
situated in a beautiful setting
reminiscent of the ancient land of
the Nile.

The Museum contains thousands of original and
rare Egyptian, Assyrian, and Babylonian antiquities. It is possible to list here only a few of the
general classifications of artifacts that you will see.
—
Necklaces, rings, and brooches worn
by noble ladies and princesses, thousands of years
before the Christian era.
COSMETICS— OriginaI cosmetic appliances from
the boudoirs of ancient Egyptian noblewomen.
STATUARY— Statuary of gods, goddesses, and
pharaohs which represents the art of ancient Egypt.

SCARABS The scarab was used as an amulet and
often buried with the mummy. It also was used
as a personal seal. Hundreds on exhibit.
DlORAMAS—Lifelike models showing

the
manner
—Papyrus scrolls, consisting
of the earliest forms of writing, and
of writing materials are on display.
the first
type
—Clay tablets of conreceipts, and correspondence as prepared by the Babylonians and Assyrians.
Funereal objects reveal the beliefs and religious
of ancient Egypt. In these objects and
their use we see inherent many practices which
are still extant in our times. We see the foundation
of such sciences as embalming, psychology, medicine, and surgery.
Mummies
—
Human and
Animal
See mummified bodies of high priests, of nobles,
of children. Learn the different methods by which
the bodies were preserved against time—and the
reasons for doing so.
Examine the ornate sarcophagi (coffins) illustrated with hieroglyphs (picture writing) relating
what the Egyptians believed occurred after death.
There is also an array of mummified animals
and birds for your examination. These were intended to symbolize certain powers or virtues
which man aspired to.
See toys entombed with a child 5,000 years ago
as, for example, a small gong with the original
cord attached. Also, see the sarcophagus in which
the child and toys were found.
Walk through an exact reproduction of a limestone tomb of 4,000 years ago! The reproduction
was designed from motion pictures and still photographs taken by the Camera Expeditions of this
Museum.
