The Cyrus Cylinder and its accompanying exhibition will be on display at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, from May 3rd through June 14th 2013.
Gary Tinterow, director of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston:
“The Cyrus Cylinder tells a great story of human history. We are thrilled to be able to bring this touchstone of ancient civilization to Houston, and to present the Cyrus Cylinder and related objects in the context of our collections.”
The tour started in DC on March 5th, and after conclusion of the exhibition at the Smithsonian’s Sackler Gallery, the exhibition will now be traveling to MFA Houston. Please see videos of the launch of the Cyrus Cylinder US Tour (video and photos), opening night remarks, and CNN’s Christiane Amanpour in conversation with Neil MacGregor, plus the complete press coverage of the tour.
