Jewels of the Nile: Ancient Egyptian Treasures from the Worcester Art Museum (free with museum admission)
The magnificence of ancient Egypt comes to brilliant life through jewelry—the most precious and personal of human possessions—in this expansive exhibition at WAM. Timed to open 100 years after the discovery of King Tutankhamun’s tomb, Jewels of the Nile puts the Museum’s collection of over 300 pieces of early Egyptian jewelry and large sculptures from the Museum’s other Egyptian holdings, on view for the first time in a century.
