Date Night in a Box

Combine a visit to Egypt: The Time of Pharaohs at NHMU with one of our brand-new Egypt-themed Date Night Boxes and you'll have the foundation for a most memorable date night!

Date Night Activities

Learn how to cook a modern Egyptian meal from Chef Lesli Sommerdorf at Harmons; craft magic amulets for your date; virtually tour ancient Egyptian landmarks, archeological sites, and museums; take turns reading ancient Egyptian love poetry to each other; burn Egyptian incense and listen to ancient Egyptian music; peruse a list of Egyptian movies recommendations from the Salt Lake Film Society; and discover Egyptian books on a recommended reading list. 

Date Night Contents

Open your Date Night in a Box to find everything you need for an evening of Egyptian-themed fun. A custom guide book will lead you through various activities, but first set the mood with the exotic aromas of incense complemented by a soundtrack of Egyptian music from a custom spotify playlist. Modeling clay, carving sticks, and acrylic paints, among other craft supplies will jump-start your Magic Amulet Activity, to be followed by Egyptian poetry reading, a virtual discovery of incredible Egyptian landmarks, and both book and film recommendations.
