Mummies: New Secrets from the Tombs

September 18, 2015 - January 18, 2016

This fall, see the world premiere of Mummies: New Secrets from the Tombs. Get a rare, up-close look at a selection of over 20 mummies, many of which have never been on public display, originating from ancient Egypt and Peru, and from many historic ages and backgrounds. This exhibition reveals these people’s burial secrets, new details about their lives, and the societies they lived in.

Also on display will also be richly decorated coffins, sarcophaguses, mummification tools, and mummies of birds, cats, and crocodiles. At interactive touchtables, you can “unwrap” layers of mummies, to see the precious objects the bodies were buried with, as well as vivid details about the individual children, teens, and adults who lived out their lives in the ancient times. Using the modern technology of CT scanning, scientists have revealed a detailed look into long-vanished cultures of Peru and Egypt.

Mummies: New Secrets from the Tombs was developed by The Field Museum, Chicago.
