The Carlos Museum in Atlanta, Georgia is one of the Southeast's premier ancient art museums with major collections of art objects from ancient Egypt, Nubia, Near East, Greece, Rome, ancient Americas, Africa, and Asia, as well as a collection of works on paper from the Renaissance to the present.
The collection of Ancient Egyptian and Nubian antiquities at the Michael C. Carlos Museum covers the full spectrum of Nile Valley civilization from the earliest Prehistoric times to the period of Roman domination. At the core of the collection are the artifacts acquired by Emory professor William Shelton, who traveled to Egypt in 1920, including the oldest Egyptian mummy in the Americas. With the purchase of Egyptian antiquities from a small, private museum in Niagara Falls, Canada in 1999, the Museum now features ten mummies, nine coffins, and a variety of other artifacts.
