"Mummies of the World," the largest exhibition of mummies and related artifacts ever assembled, bridges the gap between past and present, showing how science can shed light on the historical and cultural record around the world.
Featuring an astounding collection of 150 objects, including real human and animal mummies and related artifacts from South America, Europe, Asia, Oceania and Ancient Egypt, "Mummies of the World" also demonstrates that mummification, both through natural and intentional processes, has taken place all over the globe, from the hot desert sands of South America to remote European moors and bogs.
