Museum teaches visitors of all ages all about Egypt
A chatty description of the San Jose's Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum and Planetarium, built by the Rosicrucian Order, which was founded in the 1930s: "a mystical, philosophical organization that traces its roots to ancient Egypt, spearheaded archaeological digs in Egypt during the Depression, paying for expeditions when there was no public sector money available for research. The bulk of their finds remain in Egypt, but the budding San Jose museum slowly acquired artifacts, with permission from the Egyptian minister of antiquities".
