Mummies! is a fantastic exhibition coming this month at the American Museum of Natural History. Aside from the Egyptian mummies we all know about, there are also a collection of Peruvian and Chilean mummies that pre-date the Egyptian ones by a thousand years!
Mummies brings you face to face with some of these ancient individuals and reveals how scientists are using modern technology to glean stunning details about them and their cultures. Discover when, how, and why ancient Egyptians and Peruvians were mummified and find out who they were in life. This show features an up-close look at rarely-exhibited mummies as well as interactive touch tables, rare artifacts, and cutting-edge imaging.
Mummies! opens next Monday, March 20th. Check out the exhibition page for more info.
