If you like the Egyptians and want to learn more about them, The Metropolitan Museum of Art is just the right place for you! They have a tremendous Egyptian exhibit now. Don’t sit there considering if you should go see it! Just do it!

I recently went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art and I mostly saw the Egyptian exhibit. Oh boy, did I love it! I learned a lot about it.

They even have their own pyramid! Egyptians were going to build a dam over the pyramid and water would have demolished it. The Egyptians had so many pyramids that they didn’t care if it was crushed into a oblivion, but, to the Americans, the pyramid was precious.

So the U.S. asked permission to take the pyramid. That made it easier to build the dam, so the U.S. was able to take the pyramid and place it in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. There’s more to see in the exhibit but I’ll leave it here!

If you’re a history person, go check it out. I hope you enjoy it!

    This seems like a great place to visit! But I have one question, How do you take a pyramid?

    UMMMMMMMM! Common Sense? Maybe they dig it out and rebuild it. Try to infer what they could do. GADZOOKS!

    Andy Lin Reply:

    Thats a good idea Dash but I believe Kenny means how they can move the pyramid into the exibit after it was dug out maybe?🤔

    Great article Dash! But Just one question, did you go inside? Because when I was there it was SO crowded we just did’t get a change to go in.

    Great job on your article! I’m really interested in Egyptian pyramids and I also have 2 questions. Do you know how the Egyptians build so much or enough pyamids that they wouldn’t care if one is crushed? And plus, did they have a method of buliding a pyramid and if they did, how did they come up with it?
