Gods of Egypt
The mystical world of the ancient Egyptian gods comes to life in the large exhibition Gods of Egypt. It is entirely devoted to the ancient Egyptian pantheon and brings numerous treasures to the Netherlands. More than five hundred imposing sculptures of gods and goddesses, magical papyri, gold jewels and richly painted mummy cases, from museums in the Netherlands and abroad, demonstrate the enormous influence of the gods on the lives of the Ancient Egyptians.Go to exhibition
