Eggs over easy

There are only 42 imperial eggs known to exist from the iconic carton made by the House of Fabergé between 1855 and 1916. The eggs made of jewels and precious metals were created for Russian czars to give as Easter gifts. In addition to eggs, Fabergé made brooches, frames, cigarette cases, parasol handles, and carved stone animals. More than 230 items will be on view at “Fabergé Revealed.” Pictured: Imperial Pelican Easter Egg. Opening Day Festival
10 a.m.-4:30 p.m. (through Sept. 29). $15, $13 seniors, $11 students, free under 17.
