In this virtual exhibition the Girl Museum is asking “What was life like for a girl in the Ancient World?”. Ancient Civilizations are fascinating – the Babylonians, Chinese, Egyptians, Greeks, Indus Valley, and Maya.  These civilizations flourished between 3000 BCE and 500 CE, and left behind monuments and mysteries that fascinate us today. Yet evidence about young girls in these cultures has been scarce.

In this exhibit, the Girl Museum brings to life Ancient Girls – showing how their daily lives were similar and different, both from each other and from our modern lives.  Join the museum to travel back to these distant cultures, and discover the surprisingly complex lives that girls led.  What you’ll find isn’t in any history book – and may leave you questioning everything you’ve been taught about ancient life.
