The Mayborn has a special exhibit this summer, Lost Egypt: Ancient Secrets, Modern Science. It's pretty cool, though honestly my kids weren't that interested in any of the actual artefacts (the mummy was amazing and wish they hadn't been tugging me out of that section so I could have seen it better).
They have some special events planned every Wednesday. We've been to the "Look Like and Egyptian" event they had in June...my boys didn't care for it (the dressing up activities probably would appeal to girls more), but I'm looking forward to the Live Like and Egyptian event tomorrow, where they can make a sarcophagus, pinch pot, throw a spear and more.
And, if you want to try out the museum for FREE, there's a free day this weekend, July 3rd from 1 - 5, and another day coming up August 7th!
