Field trip to the Johns Hopkins Archaeological Museum

When: Saturday, March 10, 2012, 2:00 – 4:00 pm

Where: JHU Archaeological Museum in Baltimore (For directions, see http://archaeologicalmuseum.jhu.edu/visit/)

Co-sponsored by ARCE-DC and the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore

Members of the Walters Art Museum and the Washington DC Chapter of the American Research Center in Egypt will be visiting the aforementioned museum on Saturday, March 10, between 2:00 and 4:00 pm.  We will be given a brief introduction to the museum collections in general followed by tours of at least the Egyptological collections.  Visitors will be welcome to explore on their own as well.

Regarding the Johns Hopkins Archaeological Museum, it opened a new exhibition space in December 2010, displaying over 1,000 objects from the ancient world.  Among the objects currently on view are world-famous Athenian red-figure vases, Latin inscriptions, and ancient American turquoise mosaic plaques.  Also on display are a number of Egyptian pieces including relief fragments from Deir el-Bahari, a Ptolemaic mummy (on loan from Goucher College), and nearly 200 objects currently on loan to Johns Hopkins from the Eton College Myers Collection, which features a number of exquisite faience pieces.

For more information about the museum and its collections, please visit http://archaeologicalmuseum.jhu.edu/.  The museum is located in the heart of Gilman Hall on the Johns Hopkins Homewood Campus.  For detailed directions to the Museum, see http://archaeologicalmuseum.jhu.edu/visit/.

  1. I can not wait to go!!!

  2. It was a wonderful day at John Hopkins. Dr Betsy Bryan was very, very gracious to all of us and very knowledgable! Robert Wilson was also very gracious to us on Saturday as well. John Hopkins Archealogical Museum is small but it packs a real historic punch!

  3. I enjoyed my time at the event tremendously. I learned so much about Shabtis!!! Thank you everyone.
