Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum: Tomb Tour
Age Range: All (All grades, with parental supervision)
The Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum in San Jose, California maintains the largest collection of Egyptian artifacts in the west. They also have built a replica of a noble person’s rock-cut tomb that the public can tour at the museum – or virtually at their website.
When you get to the site you’ll see four extensive galleries of images:
- Burial Practices, Afterlife and Mummies
- Gods and Religion
- Kings and Pharaohs
- Daily Life, Trade, & Neighbors
You may select either “Image” or “Video” to view the items. When selecting “Image”, you will be taken to an interactive image to select the objects you wish to view. Hover your mouse over the image and informational text is provided. If you select “Video”, you can select an image in the first slide then a brief video presentation, complete with audio explanation, opens.
When you have completed your tour, go back to the landing page, and you can select “Explore” on the right sidebar menu to see an interactive timeline, more information about Egypt, and a whole series of recommended websites devoted to Egyptology.
