Please be advised that Walton Hall of Ancient Egypt is closed for necessary conservation work.
We invite you to visit the From Egypt to Pittsburgh display on the third floor near the entrance to Polar World. You will also be able to see our conservation team working on objects in the hall on weekdays.
In the months ahead, we will share exciting news about upcoming exhibitions featuring the ancient Egyptian objects in our care.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
The museum cares for over 5,000 objects from ancient Egypt, much of which has never been displayed. But how did the material get here? A new exhibit case, “From Egypt to Pittsburgh,” is a rotating object display that brings an object (or small group of objects) out of museum storage and traces its history from ancient Egypt to the museum.
