Take Me There: Egypt!

You can "visit" Egypt without leaving Indiana, beginning Saturday (27 June), when a new exhibit opens at the Children's Museum of Indianapolis, 3000 North Meridian Street, Indianapolis.

"Take Me There: Egypt" is a new $8 million, 13,000-square-foot exhibit space was created after more than five years of planning, and provides such an immersive experience that visitors will feel like they've experienced the country firsthand.

The opening of the exhibit coincides with the opening of a temporary exhibit on ancient Egypt, featuring artifacts from the tomb of King Tutankhamun.

"Take Me There: Egypt" is made possible by lead gifts from Lilly Endowment Inc., Eli Lilly and Company Foundation, The Lilly Family, Yvonne Shaheen, Sarah and John Lechleiter, the U.S. Institute for Museum and Library Services, Jane and Steve Marmon, Jim and Susan Naus, and Polly Hix.
