Parts of the museum were closed, we had to walk along a narrow passageway to find the Egyptian display

(I wondered if those boxes were holding items meant for the travelling show "To Live Forever: Egyptian Treasures from the Brooklyn Museum"? It travelled from summer 2008 to fall 2011 to "more than ten venues", and featured "107 objects" from its collection, and I read one of them was reported to have been the Phoenix Art Museum. (I'd hoped be able to see what I didn't see in New York!):) (I keep checking and hoping.) It is now 2016, and although I faithfully check, I've never seen an announcement for any thing ancient Egyptian-related since that lovely exhibit back in 1999.)
