Museum hosts “Sphinxes and Sweethearts” night May 31

The Museum of Peoples and Cultures at Brigham Young University will host an Egyptian-themed date night, “Sphinxes and Sweethearts,” Friday, May 31, at 7 p.m. at the museum, located on 100 E. 700 N. in Provo.

Tickets are $10 per couple and will be available at the Wilkinson Student Center Information Desk beginning Monday, May 27.

The evening will be filled with competitions, prizes, learning and food. Couples will have the chance to win prizes in 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.

“This date night offers a fun experience for couples,” said Samantha Gilbert, promotions manager at the MPC. “It’s a great way to learn something new during an exciting and eventful evening.”

The MPC hosts events to serve the academic mission of BYU and care for anthropological, archaeological and ethnographic collections in the custody of the university. The MPC educates visitors through events to branch out in creative ways to benefit the BYU community.
