BYU museum hosts “Sphinxes and Sweethearts” date night Feb. 11

The Museum of Peoples and Cultures at Brigham Young University will host an Egyptian-themed date night, “Sphinxes and Sweethearts,” Friday, Feb. 11, at 7 p.m. at the museum, located on 100 E. 700 N. in Provo.

Tickets for the event are $10 per couple and will be available at the Wilkinson Student Center Information Desk beginning Monday, Feb. 7.

The evening will be filled with competitions, prizes, learning and food.  Couples will have the chance to win prizes through three different activities:  a mummy-wrapping race, a set of three different Egyptian-themed games and painting hieroglyphics.  Mediterranean refreshments will also be provided for the couples to enjoy.

“We created this date night as a means to educate participants about ancient Egyptian culture in a relaxed, casual setting,” said Anna McKean, promotions manager at the museum. 

“I like ‘Sphinxes and Sweethearts’ because it’s a date night unlike any other,” she said.  “How often do you hear someone say that they learned to paint hieroglyphics over the weekend?”

For more information, visit mpc.byu.edu, or contact the museum at (801) 422-0020 or e-mail mpc@byu.edu. The museum is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday and Thursday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is closed Saturday and Sunday.
