An event every 10 days that begins at 11:00am, repeating until Oct 31, 2017
Get a fresh look at representations of animals with two unique tours. This one-of-a-kind experience begins with a tour of our special exhibition, Soulful Creatures: Animal Mummies in Ancient Egypt, which explores the ancient Egyptian process and purpose of animal mummification through a display of mummies of birds, cats, dogs, snakes, and other animals from cemeteries throughout Egypt. Then, we’ll hop on the trolley to Green-Wood Cemetery to compare these spiritual creatures to the wide variety of Victorian-era symbolic representations of animals, from birds and bees to lions and horses, in Green-Wood’s menagerie of monuments. On Halloween Day, the tour will have the trolley arrive at the museum and escort to and from, but once you are there we will get off the trolley and proceed on a walking tour through the Mausoleums, before ending the day with a curator led tour of the museum after hours.
