Through modern science and technology, their secrets are now revealed. Mummies of the World tells the story of mummies and mummification through state-of-the-art multimedia, hands-on interactive stations and cutting-edge 3-D animation. This 4,500-year journey lets visitors explore the mummies’ history and origins as well as how they were created, both through natural and intentional practices.
Mummies of the World highlights real advances in the scientific methods used to study mummies, including Computed Tomography (CT), ancient DNA analysis and radiocarbon dating, all of which allow researchers to learn about the lives, history, and cultures of the mummies. Who were they? Where did they come from? And what can they teach us?
