MPC Date Nights

Take a step into the past and bring a date to BYU’s Museum of Peoples and Cultures (MPC) to experience a night of Egyptian culture and cuisine. 

The date night includes 4 games, a craft, refreshments, and prizes.  First on the agenda is a mummy-wrapping race in which one person must wrap up their date like a mummy.  The first couple to finish wins a prize.  Couples will then receive scorecards and go into the Museum’s classroom to play a round of 3 different games: Pyramid, Egyptian Balderdash, and Matching of the Gods.  The couple with the highest total wins a prize.  The final prizes are awarded to couples with the best craft after they take the time to use the MPC’s own “Rosetta stone” to paint their own hieroglyphs.  Mediterranean refreshments are served.

“Couples get to learn about the Egyptian culture in a really unique way,” said Anna McKean, promotions manager at the MPC.  “Every element of the date night – the games, the craft, the food – provides interesting information about Ancient Egypt.”

The Museum of Peoples and Cultures offers a variety of date nights throughout the semester. Each date night is themed and includes relevant activities and refreshments
