Egyptian Mummies and Eternal Life

This unique exhibition takes a close-up, scientific look at the process of mummification and embalmment as practiced by the ancient Egyptians in their quest for immortality.

While the concept of eternal life is fundamental to many religions, it is the interpretation and practices of the ancient Egyptians in preparing the deceased for the life to come that is still so fascinating today, in particular the practices of mummification and embalmment. All the funeral practices, even the most macabre, were aimed not at preservation of death, but at conservation for the life beyond.
