The MAC is always a treat. It's traveling exhibits are second to none. Right now, for instance, there is an Egyptian exhibit until Jan. 6, 2017. Spokane is very fortunate to have world class shows like this one. Show your support and GO!

We thoroughly enjoyed the traveling Egypt Exhibit. The rest of the museum contained some local art. Don't miss the historic home and carriage house next door. Their a real treat.
