MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Some of the greatest finds in the history of underwater archaeology are on display beginning Sunday at the Minneapolis Institute of Art.

“Egypt’s Sunken Cities” is the result of work done by explorer and archaeologist Franck Goddio and his team. They raised the treasures from their watery hideaway after more than 1,000 years.

MIA is open every day but Monday, and admission to the museum is free. You do need a ticket for the exhibit, which cost $20 each.
