ARCHAEOLOGICAL CAMPUS - Weekend activities

Get closer to Egypt and Archaeology with your friends: during the weekend, you can take part in the excavation of an Egyptian site belonging to the dawn of this civilization or to the times of Ramses the Second. The sites are exact recreations of the original ones: they have mummies, ceramic objects and many surprises.

Become a real archaeologist and discover the tomb of Sennedyem, where you can get to know the world of the Egyptians through their images and hieroglyphs.

Activities are organized according to the age of those taking part.
