At Amos Rex, you get to explore the annual cycle, worldview, religion and state structure of ancient Egyptians, along with their everyday items. The exhibition includes, for example, ancient sandals, old tax receipts and Books of the Dead. Each item in the exhibition carries a unique story. The rich culture uncovered through archaeological excavations is still present in our everyday lives: for example, the 365-day calendar and its division of the year into 12 months, was used already in ancient Egypt. It’s no wonder then that the glory of Egypt continues to shine, even after thousands of years.
Content disclaimers: the exhibition addresses death and displays deceased in the form of mummies.
