 Kids, come meet two Egyptian mummies that have been wrapped up with Albany for over 100 years!

First, we’ll gather at the Library to learn how the mummies were acquired by the Albany Institute of History and Art in 1909. We’ll talk about the secrets they’ve been keeping, and how research at Albany Medical Center led to some amazing new discoveries.

Then, we’ll walk down the street to the museum, where participants will enjoy FREE admission, do a hands-on art project, and get a guided tour of GE Presents the Mystery of the Albany Mummies -- an all-new exhibition running from Sept. 21 through June 8, 2014.

Registration is required for this event. Please see our online calendar or call the Children’s Room at 427-4310.
