Tickets are $10 a couple and are available at the Wilkinson Student Center information desk. The museum is located at 100 E. 700 N. in Provo.

“This date night offers a fun experience for couples,” Promotions Manager Samantha Gilbert said. “It’s a great way to get out of the house and learn something new during an exciting and eventful evening.”

The event will offer prizes, cultural experiences and Mediterranean refreshments. Couples will have the chance to win prizes through different activities including a mummy-wrapping race, a set of three different games (Pyramid, Egyptian Balderdash and “Matching of the Gods”) and painting hieroglyphics. 

The Museum of Peoples and Cultures hosts events to serve the academic mission of BYU and care for anthropological, archaeological and ethnographic collections in the custody of the university.
