WELCOME TO EGYPTOLOGY
Egyptian antiquities at the Rutgers University Geology Museum and the Zimmerli Art Museum
Egyptology at Rutgers aspires to help shape the future through researching and preserving the past and then by sharing our knowledge with the general public. We invite you to see things anew through the lens of our collections. Visit us today.
Knowledge for All
RUTGERS UNIVERSITY GEOLOGY MUSEUM
The Rutgers University Geology Museum (RUGM) has 83 Egyptian artifacts in their collection, most of which were donated by Rutgers affiliates in the early 1900s. The star attraction in the collection is a Ptolemaic Period mummy, named Iset-Ha!
ZIMMERLI ART MUSEUM
The Zimmerli Art Museum (ZAM) is best known for its collection of contemporary art, but it also houses sixteen ancient Egyptian artifacts. Very few of the artifacts are on public display, therefore this website provides an exclusive view of the artifacts on reserve.
