On one side of the gallery, a sampling of their tools and crafts are displayed, which are illustrated with scenes from tomb paintings. Most of the objects in these exhibit cases were manufactured more than 3,000 years ago.

In this exhibition, the ancient Egyptians still speak to us through passages taken from their writings and through the many objects they left behind.  A fine collection of both original objects and some replicas which complement them are arranged in this gallery by subject categories such as history, daily life, religion, and writing.
