The Temple of Dendur: Celebrating 50 Years at The Met

On April 28, 1967, United States President Lyndon B. Johnson awarded an ancient Egyptian temple built in the first century B.C.—a gift from Egypt to the United States—to The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Today the structure, the Temple of Dendur in The Sackler Wing, is one of the iconic and most beloved works of art at The Met.

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of this momentous award, new essays written by staff in the Departments of Egyptian Art and Objects Conservation will be published throughout the month of April, covering various aspects of the temple—including the temple's cult and decoration; its architecture; representations of the temple in 19th-century art and photography; cleaning and conservation of the structure; and how this beloved icon made its way from Egypt to the Museum.

Join us on Saturday, April 15, for an all-day celebration of the temple, including family tours, pop-up talks with curators and conservators, and a specialty cocktail with a Temple of Dendur theme in the Great Hall Balcony Bar.
