Back in the mid-80's I visited the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum in San Jose California along with my parents. We were on a little California road trip at the time. I recently found some of the photos from that trip and since I visited this museum by myself back in 2014, I compared the photos and found that I had some similar photos. I decided to do a little update and compare the look of the place some 30 years later. Above is the scanned version of the older photo of the front of the museum.
Here is the front of the museum 30 years later. I love the color combination here better than the colors in the older shot.
And, here he is standing tall in that same spot in 2014.
This building was designed to look like the Temple of Amon in Karnak.
Here is what it looks like these days. The only difference I see is that relief at the very top of the building. Personally, I'm partial to the "Ankh".
This is the door to the auditorium at the museum. You can tell from that blue sky that this is the scanned photo from the mid 80's.
Here is an image of it from my 2014 visit.
While most museums undergo progressive changes, I notice only minor changes between the 30 year old photos and the newer ones. Like the truly ancient namesakes, they are standing the test of time.
Looking through these photos has made me want to go back for another visit. It's and easy flight from here. I might have to look into that.
