Discovered on the Giza Plateau, the Lost City of the Pyramid Builders helps answer questions about the people who undertook this massive engineering project. Learn how they lived, what they ate, and how they were organized. Explore how the windy Sahara Desert environment causes archaeological sites to be lost and found, and experiment with the engineering and technologies that the pyramid builders may have used to move the massive stones they used.
Meet “Annie” (short for “anonymous”) an unidentified girl who whose body was pulled from the Nile River and mummified. Scientists do not know the cause of her death and it is still a mystery why an unknown girl would get a mummified burial. Funerary artifacts illustrate the Egyptian concept of the afterlife: canopic jars that were used to hold and protect internal organs, amulets to protect the dead, and the ushabtis (figurines) that Egyptians believed would help with daily chores in the next world.
For the first time ever, you’ll see a life-size rapid prototype of a mummy in a stage of "unwrapping.” You’ll also see animal mummies, tomb art, and facial forensic reconstructions that show what mummies (including Annie) may have looked like in life. Decode an authentic hieroglyphic message from ancient Egypt using a full-size reproduction of the Rosetta Stone and take your photo on a life-size camel replica.
