Come say hello to an old friend - the Egyptian mummy at the Burke!

Join us for a special panel discussion with Executive Director, Julie Stein, and Curator of Archaeology, Peter Lape, as they talk about the history of the mummy, how the Burke became her home, and the implications of displaying human remains.

Please note that the mummy will be in the Burke Room and space for seating is limited. We will accommodate guests with additional standing room and seating flowing into the lobby. Program at 6:30 pm.
