Cleopatra: The Exhibition

Hey guys, so on saturday i went to the California Science center to check out Cleopatra: The Exhibition. It was awesome to see all these treasures that shows us a part of who Cleopatra really was. The exhibition features colossal statues, jewelry, and coins from Cleopatra's lost palace in Alexandria. It also shows the evacuation process involved in recovering the treasures. You also get a complimentary audio tour, which provides insights into Cleopatra’s time. This exhibition is here in California for limited time only, May 23 - December 31, 2012 and the tickets for adults are $19.75. It was so interesting and a fun learning experience for me. Well hope you enjoy the pictures down below. (the following pictures are not for commercial gain, all rights to national geographic and the California science center)
