Last month I mentioned the Las Vegas Natural History Museum, but cannot resist another mention after my most recent visit there. Wow!! The Treasures of Egypt will amaze and delight young and old! Awesome is an enormous understatement. You’ll save a pricey trip to Egypt and receive a world class experience with a short drive. Marilyn Gillespie, the Museum’s Director, spearheaded the project.

|Replica artifacts, certified by the Egyptian Antiquities Bureau, were made from the same materials and hand crafted using the same techniques employed by original artisans. Estimated at $3 million, these artifacts were donated by the Luxor. From the impressive entrance of the $1 million museum addition to the scanner allowing you to see through a replica mummy looking at medical imaging from a real mummy, to me this experience equaled the traveling Tut Exhibit with actual artifacts. Marilyn’s Museum is the only one in the US with the medical imaging of a mummy display! 900 Las Vegas Blvd. North, (702) 384-3466 or www.lvnhm.org. Open daily 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. except Christmas Day and Thanksgiving. Adults $10, kids $5, and there’s a great coupon on the website!
