Beginning today, Museum visitors can come face to face with individuals from ancient Egypt and Peru in the Museum’s latest exhibition—Mummies.
Peoples around the world practiced mummification as a means of preserving their dead for millennia. Learn about these practices, and what modern technologies are revealing about these cultures—and individual mummies. See interactive tools, ancient artifacts, and some of the world’s most rarely exhibited mummies for the first (and only) time on the east coast.
