Join Iredell Museums as we celebrate the grand opening of The Mummy Treasure of Al Faiyum on March 19, 2016 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The event will feature North Carolina’s Only Egyptian Mummy, known as Margaret the Mummy. This also marks the beginning of our “Mummy and Me” programs on Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. The mummy has not been on display since 2004 when she was carried out of the old museum as flood waters rose in the nearby Gregory Creek. Though the mummy was saved from the flood, the historic waterworks pump house that housed the museum did not fare well and was no longer usable. The upcoming exhibit includes hands-on activities for all ages. Children will transform themselves into an Egyptian pharaoh and create an elaborate collar to wear in the afterlife! Learn to write in hieroglyphs, shop in the Egyptian Souk (Market), and have your photograph taken with Kasra, our life-size Dromedary Camel. Admission to the exhibit will be $6.00; Family Level Members and above receive free admission to the Iredell Museums this Saturday. For more information, please visit
