The Hall of Ancient Egypt is temporarily closed.

Mummy: The Inside Story

This is a closed, past exhibit; it is not available for viewing.

For years, the only way to learn about Egyptian mummies was to unwrap them – a destructive and ultimately irreversible process. With the help of modern technology scientists are now able to perform CT scans, which provide a look under the wrappings and inside the mummified remains. Mummy: The Inside Story dove into current technology and took visitors on an exciting virtual tour beneath the sarcophagus lid – traveling to the past to learn more about life and death in Ancient Egypt.
