Learning by doing at Quest for Immortality (
"For parents with little Picassos at home, The Quest for Immortality: Treasures of Ancient Egypt exhibit will fascinate any kid as they peer at coffins and try to pronounce names like Wenudjebauendjed.
Beyond the mummies, however, The Frist Center for the Visual Arts also gives the whole family a crack at flexing their artistic muscles in the Martin ArtQuest interactive gallery.
ArtQuest gives kids — and kids at heart — a free chance to create art that works in conjunction with the current exhibits.
Now, visitors are painting with watercolors, designing their own mini-pyramids and pressing multicolored ink designs onto papyrus paper from Egypt."
