Egypt: Gift of the Nile

February 2 to May 26, 2019

This February Egypt is coming to Windsor, as the Royal Ontario Museum’s traveling exhibition: Egypt: Gift of the Nile will be visiting the Chimczuk Museum.  The Nile River Valley of 5,000 years ago was the birthplace of a remarkable civilization and this exhibition explores early human history.  The ROM presents the history of ancient Egyptians, which developed from a simple agricultural community into a sophisticated society that lasted thousands of years and contributed strongly to later cultures. Museum Windsor will be offering a wide array of educational programming that supports and enhances history, math, science and social studies curriculums. Bookings for fieldtrips have already started, so do not miss your chance to bring your classroom to Egypt.

Coming Soon: Local French History and Indigenous Programs

Tours are available in both English and French and cost only $5.25/student (minimum 15 students).

Please phone or email for more information and to schedule tours.
