I was recently thinking about the trip I made to San Jose California about 7 years ago to visit the Rosecrucian Egyptian Museum. I flew up to San Jose in the morning, visited the museum and flew back home in the evening just to visit this excellent museum. I remembered how much I loved the way the museum and grounds make you feel like you are in a foreign country that has somehow been dropped right into the heart of a California town.
I did a post about the museum here and another here featuring some of the exhibits inside. Thinking about the museum made me wish I could visit this exotic place again. So I looked through my photos and found a few more that show just how interesting this place is.
The main museum building looks like an ancient Egyptian temple, but one that hasn't been plundered and abandoned. Indeed, it looks very well cared for. So well cared for that you might expect to see a Pharaoh come strolling through those golden doors.
