The building, inspired by the Temple of Amon in Karnak, houses over 4,000 Egyptian artifacts including objects from pre-dynastic times through Egypt's early Islamic era.  The collection is presented in four sections: Burial Practices, Afterlife and Mummies; Gods and Religion; Kings and Pharoahs; and Daily Life, Trade and Neighbors.

Rosicrucian Park that houses the Egyptian museum is also home to a Planetarium, Peace Garden, Rosicrucian Temple, and Research Library.


Whether you go or not, the museum catalog, Treasures of the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum: A Catalogue, features the major artifacts in the Museum. It includes color photographs and descriptions of each, and essays on various aspects of ancient Egyptian culture.
