The Most Expensive Museum Admission On The West Coast

is Orange County’s smallish Bowers Museum. It will now charge $19, putting its price right behind New York’s Museum of Modern Art. “The Bowers argues that, because it charged $19 for the ongoing ‘Mummies: Death and the Afterlife in Ancient Egypt … Treasures From the British Museum,’ a special exhibition that opened in April 2005, this does not represent a price increase, since only a handful of patrons were opting to pay $5 to visit just the permanent collections.”
