10:45 AM - 4:30 PM

Come enjoy a guided tour of the Sunken Cities at the St. Louis Art Museum. They will be the first North American art museum to tell the epic story that revealed two lost cities of ancient Egypt submerged under the Mediterranean Sea for over a thousand years. World-renowned underwater archaeologist Franck Goddio and his team discovered these submerged worlds and uncovered stunning ancient religious, ceremonial, and commercial artifacts, which has led to a greater understanding of life during the age of pharaohs. More than 200 of these  authentic artifacts, including three colossal 16-foot sculptures of a pharaoh, a queen, and a god will be on view. Objects range from the colossal sculptures to precious gold coins and jewelry, bronze vessels, objects inscribed in the ancient Egyptian or Greek languages, and statues from the sunken and forgotten ancient cities. There will also be free time at the art museum. We will enjoy lunch before the museum at Sqwires in Lafayette Square.                                                         

$65 per person.  Fee includes motorcoach, admission & tour at the art museum & lunch
