  • THEMUSEUM Exhibitions Presents GETTING Naked: An Introduction

    For the first time, from March 7 to May 31, over 100 pieces from the collection will be on display in THEMUSEUM. The pieces will range in style, but all follow one theme: nakedness.

  • Museum After Dark: Studio 54

    The BIGGEST party of the year is back! This time guests can pick a side to this year’s theme: Saints and Sinners.

  • "Unwrapping" the Secrets of Ancient Egypt: Valley of the Kings

    Every year, tens of thousands of tourists flock to “The Great and Majestic Necropolis of the Millions of Years of the Pharaoh, Life, Strength, Health in the West of Thebes,” which is also referred to as “The Great Field,” or “Ta Sekhet Maat,” as the Ancient Egyptians called it. Today, it is most commonly referred to as the Valley of the Kings.

  • "Unwrapping" the Secrets of Ancient Egypt: Pyramids

    How many pyramids do you think are in Egypt? Most people are aware of the three pyramids at Giza, which of course includes the Great Pyramid: the last existing wonder of the Ancient World. However, there are more than these three pyramids throughout Egypt.

  • "Unwrapping" the Secrets of Ancient Egypt: Mummies From Around The World

    Visitors of all ages who have come to see Unwrapping Egypt have met Nefret-Mut – the mummy formally known as “Justine” – and have learned about the mummification process and its importance to Ancient Egyptians. While mummies, and the mummification process, are indeed popular and well-respected aspects of Ancient Egyptian culture, they are not a wholly Egyptian phenomenon. In fact, mummies have been discovered and excavated on every continent.

  • "Unwrapping" the Secrets of Ancient Egypt: The Great Sphinx

    One of the most iconic images associated with both ancient and modern Egypt has the head of a man and the body of a lion. They were believed to be benevolent guardians, but had the capability of being extremely dangerous in certain circumstances. Today, we refer to these beings as sphinxes.

  • "Unwrapping" the Secrets of Ancient Egypt: Female Power

    Many ancient civilizations had a gender gap: men were seen as all-powerful, whereas women were often cast aside and viewed as simple wives and child-bearers. Ancient Egyptians, however, were ahead of their time when it came to gender equality: while your social class could hold you back, your gender could not.

  • Museum After Dark: The Brush Off

    How often do you get the chance to watch artists create original works of art? For the fourth year in a row The Brush Off is back! On January 24 THEMUSEUM will come alive with some of Waterloo Region’s most well-known and emerging artists.
