Ramses the Great and the Gold of the Pharaohs

de Young Museum, San Francisco

Ramses II, known as Ramses the Great, was the most celebrated and powerful pharaoh of the New Kingdom — Egypt’s golden age. Believed to be a god on Earth, he ruled for 67 years as part of the 19th Dynasty, erecting enormous temples, obelisks, and statues and expanding Egypt’s empire. This state-of-the-art exhibition features the greatest collection of Ramses II objects and Egyptian jewelry ever to travel to the United States.

Visitors can walk among towering statues and immerse themselves in multimedia productions that re-create moments from Ramses’ life, including his triumph at Kadesh, the largest chariot battle ever fought.

Your trip to the de Young Museum will also feature the opportunity to dine in the onsite café and take in the Richard Diebenkorn exhibit also showing at the museum.

Fee: Includes transportation, onboard snacks/drinks, and museum entry tickets (lunch is on your own). Participants must stay within the Museum grounds.
