Queens of Egypt

Due to COVID-19, Queens of Egypt could not open on May 8, 2020 as planned. Further information will be provided when it becomes available.

Travel back in time to the ancient Egypt of 3,500 years ago, where you’ll encounter women of power and influence. This major exhibition features more than 300 iconic objects, including monumental statues, frescoes, sarcophagi, funerary objects, and jewellery, associated to legendary queens such as Nefertari, Nefertiti, and Hatshepsut. This immersive multisensory experience offers visitors an unforgettable glimpse into one of history’s most important ancient civilizations.

An exhibition developed by Pointe-à-Callière, Montréal Archaeology and History Complex, in collaboration with Museo Egizio of Turin (Italy), and adapted by the Canadian Museum of History.
