Tour the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum in San Jose

The Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum in San Jose is located in an area called the Rose Garden.

Every year, the Rosicrucian Museum welcomes thousands of visitors from all over the world – tourists who value the peaceful environment that the park represents as they experience a serene and calm that cannot be found anywhere else in San Jose. The unique features of this Museum are the architecture that was inspired by the Temple of Amon at Karnak in Egypt. The Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum houses the most extensive collection of Ancient Egyptian artifacts in the Western United States. The museum displays artifacts dating back to the pre-dynastic era through the early Islamic period in Egypt’s history, as well as objects of Babylonian and Assyrian origin.

The museum’s outer buildings are set back within in the manicured park. The Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum has the statue of Taweret. The gallery features themes such as Kingship and Palace, Afterlife and Rock Cut Tomb, Temple, and Akhenaten’s Amarna period. The Museum has a life-size replica of the Rock cut tomb, which is based on sketches taken by expeditions to tombs at Beni Hasan which gives visitors a real feel for the experience in the original excavation.

The museum offers a variety of interactive educational programs throughout the year and gives visitors an impressive array of films that show daily in the Rosicrucian Planetarium, and MP3 audio tours. You can take your time to explore the museum and learn more about the fascinating history and in-depth culture of the Egyptians – it is well worth your time.
