The Pharaohs’ Golden Parade was one for the ages. On Saturday, April 3, Egyptians witnessed the historic procession of 22 mummies through the streets of Cairo. During the parade, the mummies traveled from the Egyptian Museum to their new resting place – the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization, just three miles away. The undeniably lavish procession, known as the Pharaohs’ Golden Parade, was a multi-million dollar event befitting of the national treasures.
The land of pharaohs is full of antiquities, yet it is anything but stuck in the past. We are excitedly awaiting the opening of the new Grand Egyptian Museum.
