Family Activity

Mission: Nefertari

After visiting the exhibition, take part in an activity for the whole family.

Travel back in time to help Nebet, a magical cat and loyal servant to Queen Nefertari, on a special mission for the whole family. Using an app, identify some mistakes researchers made while they were assembling a study of Nefertari’s tomb in a 1930s lab. Can you take on this challenge in the allotted time? If you succeed, you’ll be rewarded by Nebet!

A web app is required for this activity; be sure to bring your mobile device.
