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.
Included in the collection are the Vac Mummies, a mummified family from Hungary believed to have died from tuberculosis; the Baron Von Holz, a German nobleman found tucked away in the family crypt of a 14th century castle wearing his best leather boots; as well as MUMAB, the first replication of Egyptian mummification done on a decedent body in 2800 years; and more.
Through modern science and engaging interactives, this astounding collection of specimens and objects reveals how the scientific study of mummies provides a window into the lives of ancient people, offering unprecedented insights into past cultures and civilizations.
Mummies of the World will be on display for a limited time, beginning Saturday, June 13. Currently tickets are available through June 30, but according to the site, it will be in Orlando through November 29, 2015. It is a timed entry exhibit, with last entry at 4pm Sundays through Thursdays, and 8pm on Fridays and Saturdays.
