Cleopatra: The Exhibition
 

Cleopatra: The Exhibition
Open at the California Science Center through December 31, 2012



She ruled the men who ruled the world, and Eye on LA got a sneak peek at the incredible artifacts (including jewelry!) that tell the story of Cleopatra's life! It's the only West Coast appearance of "Cleopatra: The Exhibition," and it's all at the California Science Center.

It's ancient drama brought to life in a huge 13,000-square-foot exhibit with the largest collection of Cleopatra-era artifacts from Egypt ever assembled in the U.S.

We know how she was portrayed in the movies, but what do we really know about her? The answers might surprise you! And they're revealed by more than 150 priceless Egyptian artifacts all recovered from the bottom of the ocean near Alexandria in Egypt. These treasures had fallen into the sea after a series of earthquakes and tsunamis nearly 2,000 years ago. Now two of the world's leading archaeologists Franck Goddio and Zahi Hawass are heading up the underwater dig and the search for Cleopatra's tomb on land.
