The Saint Louis Science Center’s new special exhibition Mummies of the World presents a fascinating look at the history, culture, and science involved in mummification. While the word “mummy” is mostly tied to the traditional linen wrapped mummies of ancient Egypt in modern popular culture, there are many different kinds of mummies from across the globe on display in this exhibit. Multiple processes of mummification are explored ranging from human engineered practices to naturally occurring phenomena.
This exhibit continues through September 6, 2021 at the Saint Louis Science Center. Please visit www.slsc.org for ticket, reservation, and health information.
