about Michael C. Carlos Museum of Emory University:
The collection covers the full spectrum of Egyptian civilization, from the earliest Predynastic times to the period of Roman domination. At the core of the collection are the artifacts acquired by Emory professor William Shelton, who traveled to Egypt in 1920 with the American Scientific Mission.
With three mummies (on view), nine coffins, and a variety of other artifacts to examine and ponder, it's easy to while away an entire afternoon.
The permanent collection also includes the Works on Paper gallery, where you can examine illuminated works from the middle ages, African art, and works from Asia and the near East in exhibits that rotate three or four times a year.
Don't miss the excellent gift shop, where you'll find great books for kids you won't find anywhere else, and plenty of other cool items.
Camp Carlos is offered for kids ages 7 to 17 in one and two-week sessions covering topics including ceramics, metal working, Indian culture, and photography.
Closed Monday and University holidays.
