Allard Pierson Museum is the archaeological museum of the University of Amsterdam. The ancient civilizations of ancient Egypt, the Near East, the Greek World, Etruria and the Roman Empire are explored in this museum. Art objects and utensils dating from 4000 B.C. to 500 A.D. give a good impression of everyday life, mythology and religion in Antiquity. The museum has collections related to the ancient civilizations of Egypt, the Near East, the Greek World, Etruria, and the Roman Empire. The collections include art objects and utensils dating from 4000 BC to 500 AD. There are also scale models of ancient temples and buildings. In the Ancient Egypt exhibition there is a room dedicated to death, with mummies, sarcophagi, and a film showing the process of mummification. The plaster-cast attic, to be visited only with a guided tour, shows copies of Roman and Greek statues.
