Philadelphia, PA - based artist Maria Mosette Kretschmann creates three unique ancient egyptian artifact replicas -- a mummy with sarcophagus, a ramesses and a sekhmet mask -- for the Penn Museum Touch Tours.

For the second consecutive Fall season, the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology offers its innovative "Touch Tours" ancient egyptian culture program,
designed with and for visitors with blindness or low vision.

Visitors learn about ancient egyptian culture through tactile classroom and gallery sessions, exploring ancient artifacts and
specially made replicas.
