From farmers to Pharaohs and tombs to temples, uncover the mysterious culture of ancient Egypt! Imagine life along the banks of the flooding Nile as we explore The Walters’ extensive collection of art and artifacts from the ancient world. Spend your afternoon discovering daily life and sacred rituals, come face to face with deities, and decode the secret messages left behind by scribes. Guided by a Museum Educator, your scouts’ voyage through desert storms and along the world’s longest river will showcase the gods, traditions, and relics of the once thriving ancient civilization of Egypt. Meander into our studios to create a work of art inspired by the treasures found in our galleries. Daisy Girl Scouts will work towards their Tula Petal. Brownie Girl Scouts will work towards their Potter badge. Junior Girl Scouts will work towards their Playing the Past badge. Cub Scouts will work towards their Art Academics Pin or Belt Loop during this interactive, two-hour exploration!
