Cleopatra - The Search for the Last Queen of Egypt

On view through September 5, 2011, the Cincinnati Museum Center is hosting the Cleopatra: The Search for the Last Queen of Egypt exhibition. This exhibition features nearly 150 artifacts from Cleopatra’s time including statuary, jewelry, coins, religious tokens and much more. For the first time ever, these two thousand year old items are on display in the United States.

On this episode of Focus, Kathy Lehr talks with three representatives to learn more about what items are on display at the Cincinnati Museum Center; how and where they were discovered; how they were excavated; and why you should attend the exhibition soon.
