Families can explore Egypt at Glass Museum

The culture of Egypt will be in the spotlight for the next Family Exploration series event at the Corning Museum of Glass.

The event will be held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.

Highlights, according to the museum:

Learn about ancient Egyptian glassmaking techniques and hear scary stories behind pieces in the Egyptian glass collection.

Write secret messages in hieroglyphics, build a pyramid, and decorate your own mummy case.

Create a kilt or collar necklace like Cleopatra's to add to your Halloween costume.

Join in belly-dancing lessons from the Rochester-based troupe Sahara Shimmer.

The Family Exploration series helps children understand what life was like when certain glass objects from the museum's collection were made. Different cultures are featured one Sunday each month and all activities are included in the price of admission to the museum.
