Rightmire Children’s Museum is holding an exhibition of Egyptology for children: "The museum is showcasing Ancient Egypt: Life and Afterlife on the Nile through May. The exhibit aligns itself with the second grade social studies Standards of Learning for the state of Virginia, which explore the impact of the Nile as well as ancient Egyptian accomplishments in architecture and writing. As part of the exhibit, the museum is bringing in live camels from the Natural Bridge Zoo from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday. . . . As part of the “Ancient Egypt” exhibit, museum visitors can learn about ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs as they create their own cartouche. Everyday life will also be explored as visitors work as a farmer or pharaoh or sail down the Nile in an Egyptian royal hunting boat. "
