The Ancient Egyptians

The Nile god Khnum wants to take you on a journey back in time to Ancient Egypt. What wonders you will see!

Explore daily life to discover answers to all of the important questions. What did the Ancient Egyptians eat? Did they go to school? What did they look like?

Hands on activities will help you discover why the Nile was so important to survival and just who was who in the land of the pharaohs.

As the journey becomes a spiritual adventure we enter the mummy’s tomb to walk amongst the gods. What is the afterlife? How do I get there? Will I have to work in the afterlife? Come face to face with the real Ancient Egyptians and you might just find out.
