nelson atkins pic Egypt at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art
Have you met the new girl in town?

New at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art! A column of hieroglyphs, repeated again and again on her gilded inner coffin, tell us her name was Meretites, which means "beloved by her father." Beyond that, we know very little about the woman who lived in middle Egypt 2,300-years ago. The Museum has opened new, permanent galleries featuring Meretites' splendid funerary assemblage, a rare collection that divulges mysteries of how the ancient Egyptians viewed the afterlife. Come get a close-up view of a culture that has inspired and captivated us for centuries. As always, admission to the Museum is FREE to all!
