For more than 3,000 years, ancient Egyptians embalmed, preserved and entombed their dead with materials they would need for life in the next world. Offerings to the gods to help ease the deceased person’s passage were often included in tombs.

This exhibition includes 3 human and 16 animal mummies, as well as pottery vessels, jewelry, tools, and other artifacts excavated from Egyptian tombs. Modern noninvasive scanning technologies allow scientists and visitors to explore the mummies’ secrets while preserving their bodies.
