|Mummy at the Michael C. Carlos Museum|
I've been an enthusiast of Ancient Egypt since I was a young child. As a matter of fact, when I was a teenager, I worked on a jumbo size chess set made of 12-inch-plus clay playing pieces for an art project. And then when the movie Stargate came out, mixing Sci-Fi and Egyptian lore into a single experience, I just couldn't get enough.
The Carlos Museum is one of Atlanta's best kept secrets, and for no good reason...it definitely should be listed as one of the city's major tourist destinations—its collections, Egyptian and otherwise, are just that incredible.
