Exhibition: Cleopatra at the Franklin Institute

Franklin Institute

Thanks to Stan Parchin for the link. Tickets are now on sale for the exhibition (Cleopatra - The Search for the Last Queen of Egypt) to members only until February 28th. The exhibition opens on June 5th 2010. If you're interested in tickets for non-members you can pre-register.

The world of Cleopatra, which has been lost to the sea and sand for nearly 2,000 years, will surface in a new exhibition, "Cleopatra: The Search for the Last Queen of Egypt," making its world premiere in June 2010 at The Franklin Institute in Philadelphia. Organized by National Geographic and Arts and Exhibitions International, with cooperation from the Egyptian Supreme Council of Antiquities and the European Institute for Underwater Archaeology (IEASM), the exhibition will feature more than 250 artifacts, and take visitors inside the present-day search for Cleopatra, which extends from the sands of Egypt to the depths of the Bay of Aboukir near Alexandria.
