Carnegie Connectors Young Professionals: The Stories We Keep

Fri., May 31, 6:00 pm – 9:30 p.m.
Exclusive event for young professionals, 21-40.

Join us for a Carnegie Connector’s exclusive event at Carnegie Museum of Natural History! Engage with museum objects like never before, pose questions to conservators, and learn the tricks and tools of the conservation trade at The Stories We Keep: Conserving Objects from Ancient Egypt.

Every object in the museum’s care has stories, from its creation and original use to the diligent conservation work undertaken to preserve it for future generations. This exhibition features more than 80 items from ancient Egypt—including the 4,000-year-old Dahshur boat, one of four in existence in the world—and the work necessary to safeguard them.

Network with members, interact with a conservator, and enjoy complimentary drinks and light bites at this exclusive event. Business casual or party attire suggested.

You must be 21 years of age or older to attend this event. Valid ID is required for entry.
