Earlier this month, I had the chance to check out the Mummies of the World exhibit at the Orlando Science Center, and I found it fascinating.
I actually saw it twice, as the first time was a quick walk-through during the Neanderthal Ball. The first time through, I saw the main parts – the mummies and a few side displays. But it’s hard to really read the plaques and absorb the displays when moving en masse with the crowd.
The popular Mummies of the World exhibition is wrapping up its run at the Orlando Science Center, and we have a 4-pack of tickets to check it out before it closes on November 29.
The tickets will also allow you and your guests to explore the rest of the Orlando Science Center, including films in the Dr. Phillips CineDome. There are four floors of edutainment to enjoy, with exhibits for all ages.
As part of a four-part Anthropology Speaker Series, with special guest speakers from the University of Central Florida, the Orlando Science Center will host Dr. Lana Williams on Saturday, October 24.
This talk is appropriate for Orlando Science Center guests of all ages and will explore ancient Egyptian mummification.
This weekend, Science Night Live!, an evening reserved for adults only, returns to the Orlando Science Center on September 19.
The event is full of everything you love about the OSC, but with grown-up inspired programming that allows adults to conduct lab experiments in Dr. Dare’s Laboratory, participate in Science Trivia, and view the stars and planets through a giant refractor telescope in the Crosby Observatory.
This Monday, August 31, the Orlando Science Center will host a group of artists who will sketch the “Mummies of the World” exhibition.
The six artists will spend the afternoon amid the displays of preserved humand and animal mummies in the exhibit. The artwork created will eventually be on display in the exhibition itself.
The Orlando Science Center is moving forward with plans for a $30 million renovation project with recent donation pledges.
Phase one of the project includes moving KidsTown, an area for children 7 and under, to the second floor and expanding it. When finished, KidsTown will be three times the size at 11,000-sq-ft. Construction is expected to start next spring, and be completed by the end of 2016.
The nationally recognized Mummies of the World exhibition will make its debut at Orlando Science Center on June 13, 2015. The exhibition presents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience real mummies in a scientific setting.
Mummies of the World is the largest exhibition of real mummies and related artifacts ever assembled, showcasing a collection of naturally and intentionally preserved mummies, presented with reverence and dignity.
