The Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum (REM) is dedicated to ancient Egypt and is located at Rosicrucian Park in San Jose, California, United States. The Ancient Mystical Order Rosae Crucis founded it (AMORC). The Rosicrucian Order continues to fund and develop the museum’s educational and scientific endeavors. The museum houses the biggest collection of ancient Egyptian artifacts in the Western United States and is adjacent to the headquarters of the Rosicrucians.


The Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum began with a single little artifact, a statue of Sekhmet (the goddess of lions) that sat on the desk of H. Spencer Lewis, the founder of the Rosicrucian Order, AMORC. Today, the Museum holds the biggest collection of authentic ancient Egyptian artifacts on display in Western North America, with over 4,000 pieces. The Museum welcomes over 100,000 visitors annually, including 26,000 schoolchildren. The Museum, Alchemy Garden and Planetarium have become an educational institution that employs trans-disciplinary methods to promote historical, contemporary, and futuristic knowledge.

The Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum comprises a composite model of an ancient Egyptian rock-cut tomb, based on photographs and sketches obtained by Rosicrucian trips to tombs at Beni Hasan, to provide visitors with the sense of being in an excavation. Below are images of the duplicate tomb inside, which contains numerous scenes from the Book of the Dead. The model tomb’s black inside is evident.
