Beginning Sep 16, Enjoy a series of special evenings that provide VMFA members the opportunity to view Treasures of Ancient Egypt: Sunken Cities on a night of members-only access to the exhibition. Single-cardholder members may reserve one free guest ticket each week, and dual-cardholder members may reserve two free guest tickets to the exhibition.
Dive into one of the most astonishing underwater discoveries of all time. The exhibition is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see treasures recovered from two powerful ancient Egyptian cities that sank into the Mediterranean more than a thousand years ago. Destroyed by natural catastrophes in the 8th century AD, Thonis-Heracleion and Canopus were once mighty centers of trade, where Egyptian and Greek cultures merged in art, worship, and everyday life.
