Rijksmuseum Van Oudheden

Thanks to Paula Veiga's Facebook post for this link.  With five photos.

27 April - 2 September 2012

The exhibition Gardens of the Pharaohs will showcase the flora of ancient Egypt. Visitors will find out what plants, trees, flowers, and crops grew in the age of the pharaohs. The museum's collection includes not only dried plant remains from thousands of years ago, but also pictures of plants and trees on a huge variety of objects: wall reliefs, mummy cases, jewellery, amulets, and drinking bowls.
