The Cabinet of Ancient Wonders presents "Wonderful Things!" at the CASINO STAGE

The Cabinet of Ancient Wonders will host a pop up museum on site at the The Roaring Twenties Lawn Party at the Crane Estate.   Using the Egyptomania created by the discovery of the undisturbed royal tomb KV62 and the body of King Tutankhamun in 1922 by Howard Carter as our inspiration, the presentation will include artifact, both real and reproduction, and our signature facsimile mummy on display, with period appropriate newspaper printings as souvenirs. The pop-up museum will be manned by 2 trained archaeologists and 1 trained Egyptologist who will be on hand during designated hours to answer any questions from the public about the materials, both in character as scholars from the 1920s, as well as annotating their commentary with updates on modern scientific practice. 2-3 times throughout the day, the Egyptologist will give a short "spot light talk" specifically on the discovery of King Tutankhamun and the royal family of the New Kingdom.
