OMSI's Mummies of the World Exhibit


Mummies of the World is the largest exhibition of mummies and related artifacts ever assembled. This compelling collection, presented with reverence and dignity, includes ancient mummies and important artifacts from Asia, Oceania, South America, Europe, as well as ancient Egypt, dating as far back as 6,500 years.
Exhibit Producer Marc Corwin and Exhibit Curator Dr. Heather Gill-Frerking joined us to talk about  how the never-before-seen collection bridges the gap between past and present with contributions from 20 world-renowned museums and organizations across seven countries. Through modern science, engaging interactive and multi-media exhibits featuring 3-D animation, explore how mummies are created, where they come from and who they were. Using state-of-the-art scientific methodology, discover how modern science enables researchers to study mummies through innovative and non-invasive ways, offering unprecedented insights into past cultures and civilizations
