Mummies of the World: The Exhibition has arrived to the Carnegie Science Center and will open to the public this Saturday October 5. The exhibit features 40 real human and animal mummies and 85 related artifacts from all over the globe. This gives visitors a look back into the lives of ancient people from every region of the world including Europe, South America, and Ancient Egypt. Exhibits include a mummified family from Hungary, a mummified German nobleman found crypt of a 15th century castle, South American shrunken heads, and more.

Guests will experience dramatic displays of the mummies and their personal stories, as well as state-of-the-art multimedia stations that take visitors on a 4,500 year journey to explore the mummies’ history and origins as well as how they were created, both naturally and intentionally.
