Walk-In Tour: The Glory of Ancient Egypt

FREE
No registration required

In this free, walk-in tour, explore one of our most popular collections: ancient Egypt. Among the most impressive pieces are two monumental 3,000-pound statues of the lion-headed goddess Sekhmet, sarcophagi, an intact mummy still in its elaborate wrappings, as well as images of private individuals and kings, and exquisite jewelry. Statuary, reliefs, stelae, funerary works, and artifacts from daily life, dating from prehistoric to Roman Egypt (5th millennium BC– 4th century AD ), can also be found in the Walters’ collection of ancient Egyptian art. Individual pieces to be highlighted during the tour are chosen by the docent. Meet in the Centre Street Lobby for our weekly free tours.
