The power and allure of ancient Egypt has attracted admirers, conquerors and colonialists for millennia. The term “Egyptomania” refers to Western cultural obsession with this storied empire. Although the phenomenon began as far back as ancient Greece and Rome, it reached a fever pitch in Europe and the United States in the 19th century. The Tennessee State Museum hosts Walk Like an Egyptian, a guided tour by curator and expert Jim Hoobler that takes a closer look at the museum’s current exhibit Egyptian Relics, Replicas and Revivals: Treasures from Tutankhamun, focusing on the Egyptomania section. Afterwards, Hoobler will treat participants to a special tour of the Downtown Presbyterian Church, one of Nashville’s most unique historic buildings, and one of a handful of surviving Egyptian Revival structures in the U.S. Don’t miss this chance to catch Nile fever.
