This event has been cancelled due to COVID-19 museum closures. As soon as a new date has been rescheduled, we will update the information here.
Join us as we go back in time with our spectacular exhibit, Egypt’s Lost Cities. The exhibition takes a fascinating look at the two ancient cities that were lost to natural disasters and the rising tides of the Mediterranean Sea. Underwater archaeologist Franck Goddio and his team discovered those cities, revealing monumental statues, religious images carved in stone, exquisite jewelry, and delicate ceramics – and a greater understanding of life during the age of the pharaohs. 200 of these authentic artifacts, including colossal 16-foot sculptures are on display.
Enjoy a delicious meal prepared by our chef. Our Egypt’s Lost Cities Lunch and Tour is a truly exceptional experience. Following the lunch at 1:30 p.m., guests will receive a docent-led tour of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Museum and the Air Force One Pavilion and will be able to self-tour our special exhibit, Egypt’s Lost Cities. An audio tour can also be pre-purchased at the discounted rate of $5, which includes over 16 stops of informative and entertaining content to provide an enhanced museum experience of our special exhibit. Casual attire is suggested. For more information, please call 805-577-4057.
