Last year wasn’t a great year for museums. The coming years promise to be much better, especially given the opening of exhibits like “Ramses and the Pharaohs’ Gold.” This traveling exhibition of Egyptian treasures is touring the United States and Europe starting in November 2021 and will continue through to January 2025. So even if pandemic-related travel restrictions remain in place for the majority of this year, you’ll still be able to catch it before the end of the half-decade.

The exhibit is centered around the ancient Egyptian royal dynasties and their treasures dating back more than 3,200 years. It’s likely to be one of the biggest Egyptian exhibits you’ll see unless you can make it to Egypt itself, so if you’re a history buff living near one of the host cities, it’s worth a trip.

The exhibit will start in the US, making its first stop at the Houston Museum of Natural Science, then proceeding to the De Young Memorial Museum in San Francisco, and finally crossing the country to The Saunders Castle at Park Plaza in Boston. After its US tour, the exhibit will travel abroad to London and onto the Grande Halle de La Villette in Paris. Each city will host the exhibition for six months.

The exact dates and ticket information haven’t been released yet.
