Cleopatra exhibit opens at in Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The new Cleopatra exhibit is opening at the Milwaukee Public Museum.

"Cleopatra: The Search for the Last Queen of Egypt" features nearly 150 artifacts, including statuary, jewelry, daily items, coins and religious tokens.

Archaeologists are still searching the sea and water for the tomb of the ill-fated lovers Cleopatra and Mark Antony.

The exhibition combines rare artifacts with photos and underwater video footage of those modern-day expeditions that are also attempting to solve mysteries that surround the rule of the queen who lived from 69 B.C. to 30 B.C.

The exhibit opens Friday in Milwaukee, which will be the third stop on its world tour. It was organized by the National Geographic Society and Arts and Exhibitions International.
