When: Nov. 15-April 8 2012
Discovery Place has unveiled its Mummies of the World, a traveling showcase comprised of 150 human and animal specimens and related artifacts from across the globe. An infant mummy dated as being almost 3,000 years older than King Tut, a mummified family discovered in an old crypt in Hungary and the disturbing monkey corpse (pictured) are among some of the many deadly delights. The exhibit allows for visitors to learn more about the process of mummification and the history, origins and causes of death of the mummies through multimedia, hands-on interactive stations and 3D animation. Like past traveling exhibits (such as Dead Sea Scrolls, Body Worlds and A Day in Pompeii) at Discovery Place, Mummies of the World will have special ticketing and timed entries.
