Cleopatra: The Exhibition, featuring the largest collection of its kind ever assembled in the U.S., opened at the California Science Center on May 23, 2012. More than 150 priceless Egyptian artifacts illuminating the life of Cleopatra VII, one of the most provocative and powerful women in history, will be on view including colossal statues, jewelry, coins and items from her sunken palace in Alexandria and other ancient sites that were significant during her life as queen. Cleopatra immerses visitors in the experience of two present-day searches on land and sea for the elusive queen. The artifacts weigh in at about 30 tons in total, including two 16-foot granite statues of a Ptolemaic king and queen from the 4th – 3rd centuries B.C. To enhance the guest experience during the run of Cleopatra, the Science Center's IMAX Theater will be featuring Mysteries of Egypt, produced by National Geographic and starring legendary screen actor Omar Sharif.
