Member Mornings – Sunken Cities: Treasures of Ancient Egypt

Nov 2, 2020 & Jan 4, 2021 | 8:00 am - 10:00 am

Members will have exclusive access to the museum on select mornings to enjoy and engage with the VMFA collection and special exhibitions during a time when the museum is not open to the public. Complimentary coffee and pastries will be offered in the Atrium. Member Mornings are open exclusively to VMFA members. We encourage you to bring guests every Wednesday evening during Member Appreciation Nights.

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.

Free for VMFA Members. Advanced reservations for Sunken Cities strongly recommended.
