The Town of Yucca Valley has opened registration for its upcoming trip for adults and seniors to Cleopatra: The Exhibition on Wednesday, October 24. The escorted motor coach will depart from the Community Center at 9:30 a.m. travel to Los Angeles for lunch and the exhibition, expecting to return by 7:00 p.m.
Don’t miss the only West Coast appearance of Cleopatra: The Exhibition at the California Science Center. This dramatically staged 13,000 square-foot exhibit features the largest collection of Cleopatra-era artifacts from Egypt ever assembled in the United States. Here for a limited time only. There are more than 150 priceless Egyptian artifacts that had been swallowed by the sand and sea after a series of earthquakes and tsunamis nearly 2,000 years ago.
The timeless legend of Cleopatra has captivated the world for centuries. She has been immortalized by Renaissance artists, had numerous plays and books written about her and in modern times has been glamorized on the silver screen. Yet we only know a fragment of her real story. The exhibition features colossal statues, jewelry and coins from Cleopatra’s lost palace in Alexandria, and reveals the excavation process involved in recovering these hidden treasures. Walk among towering monuments and glittering jewels that may have been part of the queen’s daily life. Learn how these Egyptian relics reveal mysteries of this past era. A complimentary audio tour, told in her voice, provides compelling insights into Cleopatra’s time.
Participants will start their day in Los Angeles with lunch at the Original Philippe’s French Dip Restaurant, where there is a choice of any sandwich, a side, non-alcoholic beverage and dessert. After lunch participants will go to the California Science Center at Exposition Park. While at the California Science Center those who are interested can purchase tickets on your own to enhance your Egyptian experience by seeing Mysteries of Egypt on the seven-story IMAX screen—the largest in Los Angeles.
