We first visited the outdoor gardens and walking areas. The outside is beautiful with plenty of opportunities to rest, sit at a table, reflect or take pictures. Inside they have a lot of different artifacts and displays that will intrigue all. The museum is quiet so if you have wild children it would be best to have a talk with... More

This is a wonderful museum and gardens and an excellent attraction for all ages and abilities - the museum stairs have a motorized wheelchair lift. The exhibits have details on all phases of ancient Egyptian life from birth through death, travel, trades, beauty, and more. The really cool part is the underground tunnel between exhibit halls, which is a replica... More

I loved the animal mummies and all the descriptive text about the artifacts. I did not like the steps up and down.

This beautifull park is a great place to visit. As a Rosacrucian student, is one of the most wishes to be true. the museum is excellent, the planetarium you have to see it. The gardens are very pretty, and love the laberint. I was there for the World Rosacrucian Convention.

The new Alchemy Exhibit is an extremely interesting and good look at the equipment, thought and symbology into this precursor to modern chemistry. Of course, the rest of the museum is a must see for any Egyptophile or history buff. Children will especially like the tomb tour.

Came to the 100th year AMORC convention and had a fantastic visit. My partner and I enjoyed every part of the park! The museum was impressive....with a variety of displays and the grand stories of history. The sitting areas are very artistic and inviting. The library section drew me right in. You won't be disappointed. Looking forward to watching the... More

Many many moments of Ahhhh and Ooooohhh. Really enlightening. Until the young ones hit the tone bars and create disharmony in musical notation, however, I believe there was a massive lesson I tolerance for me at the time...
