Egyptian gallery at Putman Museum to be renovated

Quad-City Times

The Putnam Museum's most iconic gallery is about to undergo a renovation, and officials at the Davenport venue want the public's help in giving it a new name to go with the new look.

The Egyptian Gallery has housed two mummies since the 1960s and is slated to reopen Aug. 22 with several updated components, including new flooring, lighting and mummy cases, plus a touch-screen video monitor that features results from the CT scans of the mummies performed at Genesis Medical Center in Davenport two years ago.
