Friday the 15th, it’s time to experience your own night at the museum! As part of the popular Queensland Museum’s Egyptian Mummies: Exploring Ancient Lives you’ll be walking, talking and drinking like an Egyptian.

There’ll be music, drinks and demonstrations. Attendees will have free reign to explore the joint displays that include six real-life mummies dating back to 900BC and 200 objects and artifacts on display alongside them.

Be like Brendan Fraser or Tom Cruise and try to unlock some ancient mysteries while knocking back drinks. You can also walk away with a new skill after experiencing Dr Serena Love’s talk on Brew Like an Egyptian: Ancient Egyptian Beer Making.

The last one sold out quick so make sure to grab your tickets before you miss out!
