Egyptian Mummies: Exploring Ancient Lives

Saturday 10 December to Sunday 30 April 2017

 

Egyptian Mummies: Exploring Ancient Lives uses the latest CT scanning technology to take you beyond the wrappings and coffins to discover what lies within.

Six mummies from the British Museum collection, estimated to be between 1,800 and 3,000 years old, can be viewed at the Powerhouse Museum alongside 3D CT scan visualisations that unlock their hidden secrets, provide unique insights into the life of ancient Egyptians and virtually explore the lives of these six individuals.

The presentation of this exhibition is a collaboration between the British Museum and the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences.
