Cleopatra Exhibition at California Science Center
Her image has been immortalized by myriad artists; her life has been depicted in books, movies and plays. But the full story about Cleopatra VII, Egypt’s last queen, is still unknown. Learn more about her life at the California Science Center in Los Angeles.
Opening May 23, at the California Science Center downtown, Cleopatra: The Exhibition attempts to unravel the mystery in its only West Coast appearance, displaying nearly 150 Egyptian artifacts. Archeologists Franck Goddio and Zahi Hawass uncovered colossal statues, jewelry and coins, creating the largest collection of Cleopatra-era artifacts from Egypt assembled in the U.S. The 13,000-square-foot exhibition shows how the team unearthed these treasures and explains what these relics reveal about the era.
