After-hours at HMNS on April 30, we hosted one of our exclusive Pixel Parties — where we open select exhibits just for photographers (both amateur and professional).

This time around, we gave photographers access to our Hall of Ancient Egypt and special exhibitions Gladiators: Heroes of the Colosseum and Out of the Amazon: Life on the River.

Here’s a small sampling of what they gave us in return:
