Queen Nefertari Exhibition

The One for Whom the Sun Shines. Queen Nefertari. Who was she? Discover one of the most celebrated and mysterious queens of Ancient Egypt and learn about the role of women in government, religion, and society. Explore daily life in Deir el-Medina, the village where tomb builders and artisans—as well as their families—lived, worked, and worshipped.

The exhibition will provide a unique opportunity for visitors to experience Ernesto Schiaparelli’s discovery of Nefertari’s exquisitely decorated tomb. Queen Nefertari: Eternal Egypt features works from the Museo Egizio in Turin, Italy, the most important collection of ancient Egyptian art objects and historic documents outside of Egypt.
