She Ruled The Men Who Ruled The World
Don’t miss the only West Coast appearance of Cleopatra: The Exhibition at the California Science Center. This dramatically staged 13,000-square-foot exhibit features the largest collection of Cleopatra-era artifacts from Egypt ever assembled in the U.S. Here for a limited time only. From the producers of the King Tut exhibition.
The timeless legend of Cleopatra has captivated the world for centuries. She has been immortalized by Renaissance artists, had numerous plays and books written about her and in modern times has been glamorized on the silver screen. Yet we only know a fragment of her real story.
Cleopatra VII became the queen of Egypt in 51 B.C. At the tender age of seventeen she was thrust into power over a country on the verge of crumbling under the mighty Roman Empire. She charmed and seduced two of ancient Rome’s most powerful leaders, Julius Caesar and Mark Antony, and bore children with both of them. Then, barely two decades after coming to power she took her own life. Still, the full story of Cleopatra’s enigmatic life has yet to be solved. Who was Cleopatra? What, and whom, did she hold dear? Was she truly an exotic beauty? In Cleopatra: The Exhibition, we are now one step closer to unraveling her story.
Come discover almost 150 priceless Egyptian artifacts that had been swallowed by the sand and sea after a series of earthquakes and tsunamis nearly 2,000 years ago. Unearthed by two of the world’s leading archaeologists Franck Goddio and Zahi Hawass, the exhibition features colossal statues, jewelry, coins, and handwritten notes from Cleopatra’s lost palace in Alexandria, and reveals the excavation process involved in recovering these hidden treasures. Walk among towering monuments and glittering jewels that may have been part of the queen’s daily life. Learn how these Egyptian relics reveal mysteries of this past era. A complimentary audio tour, told in her voice, provides compelling insights into Cleopatra’s time.
