Journey from Egypt to Mesopotamia through the galleries that showcase the history, languages, and cultures of the ancient Near East--the region that brought us the alphabet, the Pyramids, and other wonders of the ancient world. Explore ancient Egyptian mummy coffins, gaze into the faces of powerful Mesopotamian kings, visit a life-sized house from ancient Israel, and discover some of the world's oldest languages.
