Cryptic Crypts: Egyptian Symbolism at Laurel Hill

Sunday, June 30, 2019 at 1:00 PM

Discover ancient symbols and architectural styles that have survived since the time of the pharaohs on this walking tour through Laurel Hill’s historic tombs. Along the way, meet the individuals who revered such symbols enough to eternally memorialize them: like a former defamed Egyptologist, the founder of the Penn Museum of Archaeology, and even Indiana Jones. Afterwards, sip on the drink of the Gods and enjoy Mediterranean-inspired fare in the Cemetery’s historic Gatehouse.

The walking tour will take place on Sunday, June 30 at 1:00pm, departing from Laurel Hill Cemetery’s Gatehouse entrance at 3822 Ridge Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19132. Free parking is located in the lot across the street from the Gatehouse.

Ticket pricing is $15/General Admission, $15/Seniors (65 & Up), $15/Students with ID, $10/Members, $7.50/Youth (6-12), and $0/Child (5 & Under). Tickets can be purchased at the door or online.
